A loan of $4,525 helped a member to buy more food to restock her food store.

Kakakuona Group's story

Hilda, who is in her mid-50s, is married, with three grown-up children and grandchildren who go to school. She has been a food vendor for seven years now. She works from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be her 11th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to build a small house; to pay household expenses and her grandchildren's school fees, and to restock her food store. She has repaid all her loans successfully. She wants a loan to buy more food to stock and sell to more people. Her goal is one day to be able to add more rooms to her house.

Hilda will share this loan with her loan group, "Kakakuona." It consists of 16 members who hold one another accountable for paying back their loans.

In this group: Hilda, Hadija, Bernard, Innocent, Hamis, Farida, Witness, Anna, Method*, Vicent, Hadija, Rahel*, Philimon, Asha, Aviandu, Noadia
