A loan of $2,600 helped a member to buy more sacks of onions to resell.


Tugeme Group's story

Evodia, who is in her late 30s, is single with two boys who are in school. She is earning a living by running a fruit and vegetable business (genge-duka), operating since 2002. She works from 7am to 6pm 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 increase business stock, pay school fees and household expenses, and buy a TV for her home. She has paid back all her loans successfully.

She wants a loan to buy more sacks of onions to resell. Her dream is to one day be able to finish building her house and to sell fruits and vegetables at wholesale prices.

She will share this loan with her loan group "Tugeme" which totals 10 members, who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Evoda, Nurudini, Zainabu, Grace, Pascal, Nicolaus, Asia, Yese, Omary, Ismail
