Wega Group's story

Nelly, who is in her early 20's, is married. She has been a food vendor for about three years now. She works from 5am to 11pm daily and she is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be her third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to add food stock and buy a fridge, and she paid household expenses and has paid back all her loans successfully. She hopes for a loan to start a grocery business (buying water, sodas and beers). Her dream is to one day be able to own a big grocery.

She will share this loan with her loan group "Wega" which has 13 members.The members will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Nelly, Paulina, Rose, Jema, Neema, Jane, Fausta, Merina, Christina, Sophia, Evelina*, Tito, Anna
