A loan of $4,700 helped a member to buy more fruits and vegetables to resell.

Monrovia Group's story

Hariet, who is in her early 30s, is married and has four children who go to school.

She has had a fruits and vegetables business for three years now. She works from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be her third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to increase the business stock and also to renovate her working place, and she has paid back her loans successfully.

She wants a loan to buy more fruits and vegetables. Her dream is to one day buy land for building a house of her own.

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

In this group: Hariet, Aziza, Sarah, Zainab, Anna, Christina, Joyce, Asma, Anna, Flora, Fatuma, Esther*, Paulina*, Christina*, Tumaini, Halima
