A loan of $2,175 helped a member to increase her business.

Mikumi A Group's story

Grace, age 38, is married with 5 children (ages 22, 17, 15, 15, and 11). She owns a kiosk which she began 6 years ago. Her business is open from 7am to 10pm daily, and she makes a monthly profit of about $36.

In the past, Grace took out 2 previous loans with Tujijenge Tanzania to increase her kiosk business. She now hopes for a new loan to increase the same business and to open a food stand. She will share this loan with her subgroup members, who have businesses selling various foods and clothes, working at kiosks, and tailoring.

In the picture, Grace is second from the right.
