A loan of $2,400 helped a member to increase his fish stock and to buy more fruit and vegetables to resell.

Imani Group's story

Modesta is married with six children. Two of them go to school and two others are still small. He has been selling fish and has had a fruit-and-vegetable business for five years now. He works from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be his 16th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He paid school fees, bought home furniture, built a small house, purchased a small radio, paid household expenses, started selling fruit and vegetables, sold more fish and has paid back all his loans successfully. He wants a loan to increase his stock of fish and to buy more fruit and vegetables to resell. His dream is to one day be able to build a bigger house.

Modesta will share this loan with his loan group, "Imani," with 15 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Modesta, Hadija, Musa, Hawa, Niku*, Husna, Leonard, Shedrack, Clemence, Daniel, Asha, Zuhura, Maria, Maka, Magreth
