A loan of $4,800 helped a member to increase the stock of groceries and to buy more local chicken to resell.


Pera Group's story

Ngano, who is in her late thirties, is married with three children. Two of them go to school; another one is still young. She has been running two businesses, a grocery and local chicken selling business for eight years now. She works from 4.00 pm to midnight daily and is able to make a good monthly profit. This will be her 4th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to purchase missing items for her grocery and started going upcountry to buy local chicken and deliver it to hotels and houses. She has paid all her loans successfully. She wants a loan to increase the stock of groceries and to buy more local chicken to resell. Her dream is to one day be able to finish building her second house. She will share this loan with her loan group "Pera" which has a total of 14 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Ngano, Sophia, Ernea, Winfrida, David, Rehema, Azama, Mwanahamisi, Anna, Christina, Grace, Eveline, Rashid*, Mainisho
