A loan of $2,775 helped a member to buy rice, wheat flour, cooking oil and charcoal.

Magu Group's story

Riziki, who is in her mid-30s, is single with four children. Two of her children do not go to school because she has no school fees but the two younger ones go to primary schools. She also takes care of her mother. She has had a food vendor business for five years now. She works from 12 noon to 4:00 p.m (only for four hours) and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be her third loan from Tujijenge, Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy more food stock. As a single mother, she has to take care of her children and has paid back all her loans successfully. She wants a loan to buy 25 kilos of rice, 30 kilos of wheat flour, 1 backet of cooking oil and a sack of charcoal. Her dream is to be able to build her own house one day.

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

In this group: Riziki, Sihaba, Josephine, Levina, Khadija, Flaviana, Olivary, Rashid, Amina, Halima, Jamadini, Gehazi, Asha, Michael, Hausseni
