Bega Kwa Bega Group's story

Yovina, who is in her early 40's, is married with four children who go to school. She has had a clothes-selling business (vitenge (fabric) and kanga (sarongs)) for four years now. She is doing great. She works from 9am to 2pm daily, and she is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be her third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy vitenge (fabric), kanga (sarongs), to cover school fees and household expenses, and she has paid back all of her loans successfully. She would like a loan to buy more vitenge (fabric), kanga (sarongs),water, and juices to resell. Her dream is to one day be able to build a house.

She will share this loan with her loan group "Bega kwa Bega" which totals 19 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Yovina, Amina, Faudhia, Alphonce, Maua, Amina, Rukia, Hawa, Sophia, Amina, Masoud, Ngeme, Lucy*, Mwajuma, Fedha, Wandema, Jasmin, Goodluck, Hawa
