Mwaminifu Group's story

Mwajuma, who is in her mid 30s, is married with five children who are still going to school. She has been running a genge-duka (retail and fruits and vegetables in the same shop) business for eight years now. She works from 6.00 am to 8.00pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit. This will be her 4th loan fro Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to increase on the missing items in the genge-duka, started selling charcoal, paid household expenses and has paid back all her loans successfully. She wants a loan to buy more items for the genge-duka and more sacks of charcoal to resell. Her dream is to one day be able to own a Tigo Pesa (mobile phone and finance) business. She will share this loan with her loan group "Mwaminifu" which has a total of 13 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back their loans.

In this group: Mwajuma, Fatuma, Christina, Saumu, Pamba, Ashura, Ashura, Cartas, Rashid, Amina, Levina, Scola, Meru
