Wastaarabu Group's story

Pelegrin, who is in his late 20s, is married with one child who goes to school. He has been running a business of selling chips for one and a half years. He works from 12 p.m (mid-day) to mid-night daily, and is able to make a fair monthly profit. This will be his 3rd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to buy furniture for his house, pay rent, pay household expenses, and make more chips. He has paid back all his loans successfully. He hopes for a loan to buy more sacks of Irish potatoes, one bucket of cooking oil, more trays of eggs, more kilos of meat, and more chicken. His dream is to one day be able to have a big chips business. He will share this loan with his group "Wastaarabu" which has a total of 18 members who will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.
