A loan of $2,600 helped a member to buy a sack of Irish potatoes and make more chips to sell.


Uzima Group's story

Mwarani, who is in his early 30s, is married with two children who go to school. He has been running a business selling chips since 2007. He works from 7.00 am to mid-night daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be his 3rd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to make and sell more chips, bought a plot of land, bought iron sheets, paid household expenses and has paid back both his prior loans successfully. He wants a loan to buy a sack of Irish potatoes and make more chips to sell. His dream is to one day be able to build his house.
