Karoti Group's story

Dafrosa, who is in her early 40s, is married with four children who are still going to school. She has had a food shop for 5 years now. She works from 6:00 am to 10:00 pm daily and makes a fair monthly profit. This will be her 9th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to pay school fees, built a kitchen which was missing on her house, renovated the floor of her house, replaced the missing items in the food shop and has paid back all her loans successfully. She wants a loan to buy 50 kilos of sugar, 50 kilos of wheat flour, 20 kilos of backing flour, one big bucket of cooking oil, and a box of salt and biscuits. Her dream is to one day be able to buy a land and build another house. She will share this loan with her loan group "Karoti", which has a total of 15 members who will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.
