A loan of $5,325 helped a member to buy more sacks of charcoal, vegetables, and a table for home use.

Tupendane C Group's story

Zena, who is in her early 30s, is married with three children, who are still in school. She has been pursuing two different businesses, selling charcoal and selling vegetables in the evenings. She works from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be her second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to start selling vegetables. She also bought more sacks of charcoal and a sofa set. She repaid the loan successfully. She wants a loan to buy more sacks of charcoal, more vegetables, and a table for home use. Her dream is to one day be able to extend her businesses.

Zena will share this loan with her loan group, "Tupendane C," with 18 members, who hold one other accountable for paying back their loans.

In this group: Zena, Rukwa, Mwanamkuu, Mwanahamis, Omary, Halima, Zainabu*, Mwajuma, Mariam, Halima, Regina, Hamisa, Twaha, Hidaya, Joseph, Salum, Agatha, Emanuel
