A loan of $2,975 helped a member to increase her store inventory.

Vodacom Group's story

Dorothea, who is in her early 40s, is a widow with three children who are still going to school. She has had a general store for 10 years now. She works from 6:30 am to 8:00 pm daily and is able to make a fairly good profit.

This will be her first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania, which she wants to use to increase the store's inventory. Her dream is to one day be able to open a wholesale shop (the one she has is a retail shop).

She will share this loan with her loan group "Vodacom," which has a total of 16 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back their loans.

In this group: Dorothea, Mary, Anthony, Maria, Lakeni, Hadija, Sheila, Edna*, Asha*, Sophia, Christina, Francis, Holitencia, Jane*, Neema, Julias
