A loan of $4,800 helped a member to buy more buckets of fish to sell.


Actable The Best Group's story

Christian, who is in his early sixties, is married with five children, one of whom is still at university. He has been selling fried fish for five years now. He works from 7.00 am to 2.00 pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be his fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loan to buy more buckets of fish, took care of his family (food and hospital) and has paid back all his loans successfully. He wants a loan to buy still more buckets of fish to sell. His dream is to one day become an international business man.

He will share this loan with his loan group "Actable The Best" which has a total of twenty-one members who will hold each other accountable for paying back their loans.

In this group: Christian, Job, Mary, Haruna, Frola, Frolida, Rehema, Asha, Pesa, Kijoli, Tamasha*, Rehema, Kelvin, Mohamed, Maria, Salma, Halima, Zuhura, Rehema, Omary, Rose
