A loan of $2,950 helped a member to buy sacks of rice, maize flour, wheat flour, sugar and beans.


Kitumbo Group's story

Salum is in his late twenties and is married. He has had a food business (selling rice, beans, sugar, wheat flour and maize flour) for about two years now. He is really hard working. Salum works from 6am to 8pm and he is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be his second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loan to increase his food stock and has successfully repaid his loan. Salum hopes for a loan to buy sacks of rice, maize flour, wheat flour, sugar and beans. His dream is to one day be able to build his own house.

Salum will share this loan with his loan group, Kitumbo, which totals 14 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Salum, Hamisi, Haji, Aisha, Erick, Omari, Amiri, Abdul, Hawa, Hadija*, Ramadhan*, Sambwe, Sultani, Zainabu
