A loan of $5,000 helped a member to buy more stocks for her business.

Azizi Group's story

Grace is in her early 30s, and she is single, with one boy who goes to school.

She has been selling soft drinks for five years now. She works from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m., and she is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be her 13th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy more stocks of soft drinks and vochas to resell. She has paid back all her loans successfully. She hopes for a loan to increase her stocks of soft drinks.

Her dream is one day to be able to buy a hiace (a business bus).

She will share this loan with her loan group "Azizi," which totals 16 members who will hold one another accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Grace, Amina, Angela, Elizabeth, Gladeness, Irene*, Jane, Zena, Dorice, Mwajabu, Vale, Rehema, Anitha, Deogracia, Asha, Mwanaima*
