A loan of $2,675 helped a member to buy more sausages to sell and to start building his house.


Dove Group's story

Josephat, who is in his early 30's, is the married father of three children, one of whom attends school. He has had a sausage-selling business for four years now, delivering his product to hotels and bars. Working from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily, he is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Josephat's second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania; his previous one, since repaid, was used to buy more sausages and pay for his land. He will use this loan to buy additional sausages and to start building his house. His dream is to one day be able to finish his house.

Josephat will share this loan with his loan group "Dove", which has a total of 14 members who will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.

In this group: Josephat, Levina, Pili, Tizo, Helena, Neema, Martina, Caroline, Mwajuma, Eurelia*, Wilnesta, Bernadetha, Theresia, Elizabeth
