A loan of $3,825 helped a member to increase stock on his hardware shop.

Antokia Group's story

Kenedy, who is in his late forties, is married and has four children. He has been running a hardware shop for six years. He works from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Kenedy’s third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to increase the stock of the missing items. He has repaid all of his loans successfully. He wants a loan to increase stock on his hardware shop. His dream is to one day be able to open another shop in a different area.

Kenedy will share this loan with his group, "Antokia" which consists of 15 members who will hold each other accountable in paying back the loan.

In this group: Kenedy, Hobokela, Halima*, Asha, Ansasia, Grace, Athonia, Nichollaus, Goodluck*, Caroline, Aisha, Yasinta, Melina, Fred, Huruma*
