A loan of $2,900 helped a member to buy a deep freezer.


Upendo Mlonganzila Group's story

Festo, who is in his early 30s, is married with four children who are still going to school. He has been running a food shop for 10 years now. He works from 6:00 am to 10:00 pm daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be his 6th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to increase stock of missing items in the shop and to pay household expenses. He has paid back all his previous loans successfully. He wants a new loan to buy a second-hand deep freezer. His dream is to one day be able to build his own house.

He will share this loan with his loan group "Upendo Mloganzila," which has a total of 15 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back their loans.

In this group: Festo, Suzana, Juma, Omary, Veronica, Shaban, Zeph, Sophia, Amos, William, Sesilia, Isaack, Alfred, Sia, Tatu
