A loan of $3,625 helped a member to buy more food to sell.

Uhuru Group's story

Dora, who is in her mid 30s, is divorced and has three children, all of whom are in school. She has been a food vendor for two years now. She works from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Dora's third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She has paid back all her loans successfully. She would like a loan so she can buy more food to sell in her food stall. Her dream is to one day be able to own a hotel.

Dora will share this loan with her loan group Uhuru, which has a total of 13 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back their loans.

In this group: Dora, Flora, Mwanaid, Right*, Adam, Nora, Justine, Reconciliator, Bitunny, Jullieth, Joyce, Julias, Basilisa
