A loan of $4,425 helped a member to buy iron sheets to build a room for his food store.


Mt Usambara Group's story

Daudi, who is in his early 50s, is married with six children, three of whom are adults and three of whom still go to school. He has been running a food shop for about two years now. He works from 6 am to 9 pm daily 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 buy more stock of sugar, rice and different kind of soaps and he has paid back his loan successfully. He hopes for a new loan to buy iron sheets to build a food shop room. His dream is to build a new good house, buy a farm and start a new chicken business.

He will share this loan with his loan group "Mt Usambara", which consists of 10 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Daudi, Fausta, Dorah, Josephine, Hashim, Nuru, Halima*, Jalala, Nassoro, Saida
