Coka Kiwalani Group's story

Irene, who is in her late 20s, is single. She has a small general store, which she has run for six months. She works from 6 am to 10 pm daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be Irene's first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania, which she wants to use to increase the shop inventory. Her dream is to one day own a grocery where she can sell drinks and snacks. Irene will share this loan with her loan group "Coka Kiwalani," which has a total of 18 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back their loans.

In this group: Irene, Monic, Tamari, Asha, Shani, Matemba, Mwababu, Fatuma, John, Amina, Rehema, Rebeka, Sauba, Happy, Aisha, Nuru*, Rehema*, Shabani
