A loan of $4,650 helped a member to buy more fruit and vegetables to sell.

Elephant Group's story

Bufu, who is in his mid 40s, is married with four children: two of them are independent and two of them are still going to school. He has been running a fruit and vegetable business for two years now. He works from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be his 2nd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loan to buy missing items he needed. He took care of his family and has paid back his loan successfully. He wants a loan to increase his stock of fruit and vegetables. His dream is to one day be able to buy a car for transporting his fruit and vegetables from the market place.

He will share this loan with his loan group "Elephant" who has a total of 26 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back their loans

In this group: Bofu, Tecla, Magoso, Saumu, Habiba, Masha, John, Selemani, Siaba, Rehema, Zuhura, Angelina, Zuhura, Shalifa, Olitha, Amina, Rehema, Elizabeth, Zainab, Janeth, Hussein, Yoranda, Etinisimbo, Hilda*, Amina, Amina
