Rufiji Group's story

Vissa, who is in her late 20s, is single. She has been running a business of selling fried chicken, fried bananas and fried chicken legs for four years now. She works from 2 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. daily (she works in the evenings only) and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be her 7th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to increase her business, paid room rent, bought house holdings like a bed, cupboard, cups, saucepans and has paid back all her loans successfully. She wants a loan to buy 10 pieces of chicken, 3 bundles of chicken legs, some Bananas and to save fifty thousand.

She will share this loan with her loan group "Rufiji", which has a total of 15 members who will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.

In this group: Vissa, Restituti, Fatuma*, Wahidi, Abasi, Salama, Salama, Chiku, Tausi, Shabani, Hawa*, Zainabu, Stukia, Sikitiko, Mwajuma*
