A loan of $5,250 helped a member to buy more bread to resell and to increase her garden space to grow and sell more vegetables.


Tembo Mgwaza Group's story

Aida, who is in her mid 40s, is married with three children who are still going to school. She has two businesses: selling bread door-to-door and growing vegetables to sell from her garden. She has had these businesses for two years now. She works from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be her first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania which she wants to use to buy more bread to sell and to increase her garden space to grow and sell more vegetables. Her dream is to one day be able to finish building her house.

Aida will share this loan with her loan group Tembo Mgwaza which has a total of 16 members. They will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Aida, Titi, Catherine, Asha, Rose, Devota, Enita, Zainabui, Genofefa, Amina, Beatrice, Veronica, Hawa, Martha, Rehema, Mwanaaly
