A loan of $3,125 helped a member to buy chicken feed and catering utensils.

Antokia Group's story

Grace, who is in her late 40s, is married with two children who go to school. She has been running poultry and catering businesses since 1998. She works from 6 a.m. to 12 midnight (including catering services time) and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be her first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania, which she wants to use to buy chicken feed and more catering utensils. Her dream is to one day be able to buy an incubator for producing chicks to sell and to increase her stock in her poultry business.

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

In this group: Grace, Hobokela, Halima, Asha, Angasia, Antonia, Micholaus, Mickodem, Zainab, Godluck, Kennedy, Fred, Meriana, Yasinta*, Huruma
