A loan of $4,025 helped a member to buy more sacks of charcoal.

Furaha Chanika Group's story

Anastazia, a 30-year-old married mother of three children who go to school, has been selling charcoal for about two years now and is doing very well. She works from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily and is able to make a monthly profit of about $80.

This will be her first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania which she will use to buy more sacks of charcoal. Her dream is to be able to build a house. She will share this loan with her loan group "Furaha Chanika," which consists of 15 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Anastazia, Mazoea, Fatuma, Asha, Mwajuma, Rukia, Mwajabu, Fatuma*, Latifa, Marry, Mwamvita, Zainabu, Zawadi, Asha, Omary
