A loan of $4,175 helped a member to purchase food supplies and pay for school fees.


Kapampa Group's story

Mariam, who is in her mid 50s, is a divorced woman with four children, all of whom are in school. She has run several businesses--juice, chicken, water, sodas, and pigs--for the past three years. She works from 8 a.m to 8 p.m daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit. This will be Mariam's 4th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used her previous loans, all of which she paid back successfully, to buy chicken feed and pay for school fees. She has requested this new loan to primarily buy more supplies for her food stall and also to pay school fees. Her dream is to one day be able to own a retail shop for food. Mariam will share this loan with her loan group "Kapampa," which has a total of 16 members who will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.

In this group: Mariam, Samson, Elasto, Moses, Nakijwa, Janeth, Ramadhan, Suma, Mohamed, Elizabeth, Winifrida, Seregeta, Zera, Pendo, Eveline, Anna
