A loan of $4,675 helped a member to buy more fruits and vegetables for resale.


Maarifa Group's story

Mgeni, who is in his early 40s, is married and has three children who are still going to school. He has been running a business of selling fruits and vegetables since 1989. He works from 7.00am to 6.00pm daily and has been able to make a fair profit.

This will be his 15th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to renovate the place where he sells his fruits and vegetables; it looks attractive. He bought more fruits and vegetables, looked after his family's welfare and has paid back all his loans successfully. Mgeni wants a loan to buy more fruits and vegetables to resell. His dream is to one day be able to go up-country and bring rice and beans to sell at wholesale prices.
