A loan of $2,850 helped a member to buy more fruits and vegetables to sell and for household expenses.

Utamaduni Group's story

Melisiana, who is in her mid-forties, is married with three children who go to school. She has been selling fruits and vegetables for six years now. She works from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be Melisiana’s fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to pay school fees and increase the amount of produce she sells. She paid back all of her loans successfully.

Melisiana hopes for a loan for household expenses and to buy more fruits and vegetables to sell. She will share this 4,510,000 TZS loan with her loan group, "Utamaduni," which has a total of fifteen members who will hold each other accountable for paying back their loans.

Melisiana’s dream is to one day finish building her house which she has already started.

In this group: Melisiana, Salumu, Mary, Maumwa, Malisa, Laila, Amina, Amina, Iaamra, Asha, Ragima, Zamini, Kulusumu, Fatuma, Zainabu*
