A loan of $2,800 helped a member to increase food stock and quarried stone.


Wazo Tegeta. Group's story

Paulina is in her late thirties and is married with three children who go to school. She has been a food vendor and sold quarried stone for two years now. She works from 6.00am to 10.00pm daily and she is able to make a good monthly profit. This will be Paulina’s fifth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to increase the stock in her food vendor business and to pay school fees for her children. She has paid back all her loans successfully. She hopes for a loan to buy kitchen utensils and stock her food business. Paulina’s dream is to one day be able to buy land and build her own house. Paulina will share this loan with her loan group, "Wazo Tegeta", which has a total of 17 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.

In this group: Paulina, Ritha, Rhoda, Kulwa, Hawa, Saida, Upando, Filbert, Melania, Theopista, Fatuma, Mariam, Regina*, Geofrey, Evarist, Elizabeth, Marselina*
