A loan of $3,775 helped a member to buy a stock of groceries.

Mavuno Group's story

Agatha, who is in her early 20s, is married with a young baby. She is currently employed in a restaurant but she has been selling soaps and juices for four months now. She works every evening after work; she runs her business in nearby cafes and shops as she doesn't have her own place and she is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be her 2nd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to buy sacks of charcoal and she has paid back her loan successfully. She hopes for a loan to start a new grocery business and to buy stocks of groceries. Her dream is to one day be able to build her own house.

She will share this loan with her loan group "Mavuno" which has 19 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Agatha, Peter, Ester, Kisala, Sinawema, Mariam, Barnabas, Ashura, Zuhura, Hassan, Dadi, Fatuma, Lai, Zena, Mariam, Marietha, Shesa, Mary*, Hilda
