A loan of $3,550 helped a member to buy more food stuff for the food market.


Karoti Group's story

Nimulike, who is in her early thirties, is married with two children. The elder one goes to school. She has been a food vendor for one year now at a place called Tegeta, some 10 kilometers from the city center. She works from 5am to 5:30pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit. This will be Nimulike’s 2nd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to increase her capital, and managed to sell more food. She has paid back her loan successfully. She wants a new loan to buy more food stuff for making more and better quality food. Her dream is to one day open a shop and sell drinks at wholesale prices. She will share this loan with her loan group ("Karoti") which has a total of 15 members, who will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.

In this group: Nimulike, Anna*, Said, Christina, Mary, Maria, Mariam, Dafrosa, Esther, Magret, Veronica, Azalia, Asha, Philomena, Sweethaetb*
