A loan of $5,800 helped a member to buy more sacks of charcoal.


Kisiwani Group's story

Anjelina was born 35 years ago, is single, and has two children (boys) who are in school. For five years, Anjelina has earned a living by running a charcoal business. She is doing great with her family and her business. She works from 8am to 8pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be her 4th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to start building her family house, buy more sacks of charcoal, pay school fees for her children, pay rent for her business area, and pay household expenses. She has paid back all her loans successfully and requests the new loan to buy more sacks of charcoal to raise her sales. Her dream is to one day be able to provide better education to her children and finish her family house.

She will share this loan with her loan group, Kisiwani, which has 14 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Anjelina, Haina, Jamila, Joyce, Jane, Christina, Patricia, Hadija, Jane, Rose, Kijoli, Digna, Bahati, Dominica
