A loan of $4,800 helped a member to buy fish and chicken, some to boil and the other part to fry and sell it dry.


Mgombola Group's story

Ladislaus, who is in his early 30s, is married. He has been running a business of selling many types of soup (using the head, legs, and intestines of chickens, and cow legs and heads) since 2005. He works from 6:00 am to midnight and is able to make a fair monthly profit. This will be his second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loan to sell all his types of soup and has paid back his loan successfully. He now wants a loan to buy fish and chicken, some to boil and and the other part to fry and sell it dry. His dream is to one day be able to build his own house. He will share this loan with his loan group "Mgombolwa," which has a total of 19 members who will hold each other accountable for paying their loans.

In this group: Ladislaus, Khadija, Ezefiel*, Mohamed, Sikudhani, Shani*, Julieth, Toyce, Brasius, Hamida*, Mariam, Pili, Azama, Habiba, Salma, Jamila, Fatuma, John, Adabet
