A loan of $4,150 helped a member to increase grocery inventory.

Sigara Group's story

Rehemer, who is in her mid-30s, is married with four children who are still going to school. She has had a grocery business since 2004. She works from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be her 6th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to increase her stock, pay school fees, household expenses and also renovated her house. She has paid back all her loans successfully. She wants a loan to further increase the grocery inventory. Her dream is to one day be able to own a car so that she can deliver her grocery items easily, and also so she and her children can be mobile.

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

In this group: Rehema, Imelda, Johari, Leah, Jenny, Christina, Prima*, Salma, Tekla, Yusta, Sikitu, Mariam, Neema, Hadija*, Dorah
