A loan of $2,975 helped a member to buy more water, juice and sodas to sell.


Maisha Zakhiem Group's story

Ashura, who is in her mid 20's, is single. She has been running a soft drinks business for 8 months now. She works from 8 a.m to 7 p.m daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be her first loan from Tujujenge Tanzania, which she wants to use to buy more water, juice and sodas to sell. Her dream is to one day be able to sell new clothes from door-to-door and also to be able to buy land.

She will share this loan with her loan group "Misha Zakhiem", which has a total of 18 members, who will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.

In this group: Ashura, Omary, Daima*, Siwajibu, Fatuma, Kasimu, Khadija, Maua, Swaumu*, Salma*, Rukia, Aisina, Rose, Sudi, Fatuma, Amina, Salum, E$Lizabeth
