Mbinga Group's story

Helena is in her late 40s, married and the mother of four children, two of whom are grown while the other two are still in school. She earns a living by running several businesses, including selling bricks, food and water from big trucks. She has been in business since 2005, works from 5:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily and earns a very good monthly profit. She is requesting her eighth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used her previous loans to start her business, pay school fees, buy a plot of land, built a small house, and buy a TV set. She has repaid all of her loans successfully, and plans to use this new one to buy more bricks to resell, increase the amount of food she has to sell and pay school fees. Her dream is to one day be able to build another house. She will share this loan with her group, "Mbinga," which has 10 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back this loan.

In this group: Helena, Hadia, Rehema, Sikitu, Mwajuma, Salma, Furaha, Theresia, Shadya, Mwangaza
