A loan of $3,525 helped a member to buy more local brooms to sell and to start selling small bites.


Lukundo Group's story

Flora, who is in her early 40s is married with six children, five of whom go to school. She has been going upcountry to buy local brooms for sale for five years now. She works from 5 a.m to 11 a.m (for six hours only) daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be her 4th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy more brooms, paid school fees, household expeses and has paid all her loans successfully. She hopes for a loan to buy upcountry more brooms to sell and also start selling small bites in the same place. Her dream is to one day be able to build a water tank for water sales.

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

In this group: Flora, Remija, Seleman, Fadhil, Said, Ramadhan, Julieth, Said, Mariam, Flora..., Edina, Mohamed, Khamis, Abdalah, Fatuma, Zaitun
