A loan of $2,250 helped a member to buy more fruits, vegetables, wheat flour, sugar, baking flour and cooking oil to sell.


Uvumilivu Group's story

Rebecca, who is in her early 30s, is married with two children. One of her children goes to school. She has had a gengeduka, which means she sells fruits, vegetables, wheat flour, baking flour, cooking oil, and sugar on the same table. She has had this business for one year now. She works from 7 am. to 8 pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be her third Motisha loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. A Motisha loan is a product offered by Tujijenge Tanzania given in the middle of the main loan that motivates borrowers with good credit ratings who pay back their loans smoothly to receive half amount of the existing loan before their original loan term has ended. She used the previous loans to expand her gengeduka and has paid back her loans successfully. She wants a loan to buy more fruits, vegetables, wheat flour, sugar, baking flour and cooking oil to sell. Her dream is to one day be able to build her own house.

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

In this group: Rebecca, Maua, Hawa*, Fatuma*, Renatha, Sofia, Upendo, Nancy*, Hilder, Allen, Janeth, Damian, Rajabu, Omary, Andrew
