Rukwa Group's story

Asha is in her mid-40s and is a widow with three children in school. She has been running a food cafe for ten years now. She works from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be her first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania, which she wants to use to increase the food cafe stock to sell to more people. Her dream is to one day become an international businesswoman.

She will share this loan with her loan group "Rukwa," which has a total of 14 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back their loans.

In this group: Asha, Alfredy, Paulo, Happyness, Sara, Joma, Baetholomro*, Maulid, Maulid, Habibu*, Abdalla, Martha, Mwajuma, Gordian
