A loan of $2,575 helped a member to buy ingredients for her food vending business.


Tamalinda Group's story

Mwanahamis is in her early 30s and is married with two children who are still in school. Since 2007, she has operated a food vendor business and she works from six in the morning through four in the afternoon to make a fair monthly profit. This will be her third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. Mwanahamis used her previous loans to increase her food stock and provide for household expenses. She has successfully repaid her previous loans.

Mwanahamis is requesting a loan to increase the stock of ingredients for her business. She will share her loan with her group “Tamalinda,” which has 17 members who will hold each other accountable for repaying their loans. In the future, Mwanahamis dreams of buying land and building her own house.
