A loan of $3,150 helped a member to buy more fish to sell.


Paradise Group's story

Shabani is in his late thirties, and he is married with five children who go to school. He has two businesses. He has been selling fresh fish and working as a food vendor for about ten years now. He is really hard working. He works from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m., and he is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Shabani’s second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loan to buy a deep freezer and has paid back his loan successfully. He hopes for a loan to open another fish business. His dream is to have more fish shops in different areas and to one day be able to build a big hotel.

He will share this loan with his loan group, Paradise, which totals 13 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Shabani, Magreth, Mesia, Ally , Neema, Geofrey, Amiri, Modesta, Modesta, Cecilia, Rehema, Aisha, Bakari
