A loan of $2,025 helped a member to buy more food to sell to more customers.


Kwembe Group's story

Mercy is in her late 40s and single with two children who attend school. For the past year, she has been selling food. Mercy works every day from 6:30 in the morning through 6:00 in the evening and is able to make a very small monthly profit. Mercy is requesting her first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania to buy more stock of food to sell to more customers. She will share her loan with her loan group "Kwembe." This group has 10 members who will hold each other accountable for repaying the loan. In the future, Mercy's dream is to one day own a hotel.

In this group: Mercy, Zawadi, Pili, Athanal, Pamela, Julius, Mgaya, Eda, Leah*, Msafiri
