A loan of $3,550 helped a member to buy items needed in her food shop.


Saranga Group's story

Scolastica, who is in her early 20s, is single, with one baby. She has run a food shop for two years now. She works from 7am to 9pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be her 3rd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy food to sell in her shop, and she has paid back all her loans successfully. She hopes for a loan to stock missing food items. Her dream is to one day be able to build her own house and expand her business.

She will share this loan with her loan group "Saranga," which totals 15 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Scolastica, Zuhura, Arackyely, Ester, Alphonce, Dainess, Haruna, Fatuma, Joseph, Christopher, Tabu, Happyness*, Shabani, Happy, Steven
