Makabe Group's story

Merina, who is in her late 30s, is single with one child who is still going to school. She has been selling food in a remote area for one year. She works from 8 am to 8 pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be her first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania, which she wants to use to buy a sack of wheat flour, 30kilos of beans, a sack of rice and cooking oil. This will help her cook more food and sell to more people. Her dream is to one day buy and own a plot of land.

She will share this loan with her loan group "Makabe" which has a total of 16 members, who will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.

In this group: Merina, Amasa, Saumu, Almara, Asha, Angela, Doto, Seraphina*, Esther, Rukia, Jamila, Frida, Magreth, Latifa*, Fatuma, Lusuja*
