A loan of $2,675 helped a member to buy vegetables to resell, and increase inventory of water, juice and sodas.

Paradise Group's story

Cecilia is in her mid-50s, and is a widow with five grown-up children. She has been running a business selling vegetables for 10 years now, and also sells juice, water and sodas. She works from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be her 10th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy extra items, and cover household expenses. She has paid back all her loans successfully. She wants a loan to increase her supplies of vegetables to resell, and also to increase her inventory of water, juice and sodas. Her dream is to one day be able to own a hotel.

Cecilia will share this loan with her loan group "Paradise", which has a total of 15 members. They hold each other accountable for paying back their loans.

In this group: Cecilia, Amiri, Rajabu, Magreth, Godfrey, Stella, Neema, Rehema, Rehema, Modesta, Aisha, Shabani, Bakiri, Mesia*, Ally
