A loan of $4,125 helped a member to buy wheat flour, sugar, cooking oil, beans, and charcoal.


Chamwino Group's story

Assa, who is in her early 40s, is married with three children. Two of them go to school and one has finished schooling. She has been a food vendor for five years now. She works from 1:00 to 4:00 (three hours only) and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be her sixth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to start building her house, pay school fees, and provide for household expenses. She has paid back her loan successfully. She wants a loan to buy wheat flour, sugar, cooking oil, beans, and charcoal. This will allow her to sell to more people. Her dream is to one day be able to build and finish her house.

Assa will share this loan with her loan group, Chamwino, which has a total of 15 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Assa, Neema, Juma, Jamila, Asha, Anjuja, Hanisha, Noel, Rukia, Zahara, Msifuni, Amina, Fatuma, Regina , Anna
