A loan of $4,475 helped a member to buy more sodas, juice, water, chapati and mandazi.


Brown Group's story

Marry, who is in her early thirties, is married with three children, two of whom are in school. She has had a cafe, where she sells soda, juice, water, chapati (unleavened flatbread) and mandazi (fried bread, similar to doughnuts), for one year now. She works from 6:30 A.M. to 9:00 P.M. daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Marry's second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to increase her supply of items that were almost out of stock. She paid back her loan successfully. Now, Marry wants a loan to buy more sodas, juice, water, chapati and mandazi. Her dream is to one day own a hotel.

Marry will share this loan with her loan group "Brown" that has a total of thirteen members who will hold each other accountable to pay back the loan.

In this group: Marry, Rachel, Furaha, Marry......, Agness*, Magdalena, Winfrida, Esther, Asha, Stella, Biligita, Mussa, Moshi
