A loan of $5,450 helped a member to buy more stocks of sugar, salt, wheat flour, and some kilos of beans.

Prado Group's story

Isael is in her early 30s. She is married, with three children who go to school.

Isael has had a business of selling rice, wheat flour, salt, beans, and maize flour for three years now. She works from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be her third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy some kilos of beans and sugar, to pay school fees and household expenses, and to pay rent for her shop. She has repaid all her loans successfully.

She hopes for a loan to increase her stocks of sugar, salt, wheat flour, and some kilos of beans for her business. Her dream is one day to be able to build her own house.

She will share this loan with her loan group, “Prado,” which has 16 members who will hold one another accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Isael, Karume, Alexander, Monika, Samweli, Marry, Bernadeta, Grace, Paulo, Kiza, Raphaela, Scola, Radegunda, Steven, Joyce, Anita
