A loan of $5,525 helped a member to buy a fridge for her business and restock more food items in her shop.

Mgombolwa Group's story

Fatuma, who is in her 40s, is married and has four children (three boys and a girl) who are still in school. She has had a food shop for three years now. She works from 7am to 9pm daily and she is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be her second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to buy more sacks of rice, maize flour and sugar, liters of cooking oil, and cover household expenses. She has paid back her loan successfully. She wants a loan to buy a fridge for her business and to restock more food items in her shop. Her dream is to one day be able to open a new food shop business in another place.

She will share this loan with her loan group "Mgombolwa" which totals 17 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Fatuma, Hadija, Ezekiel, Godfrey, Fatuma.., Mohamed, Sikudhani, Avelina, Ladislaus, Hamida, Mariam, Pilly, Salma, Dotto, Habiba, Tumba, Hadija
