A loan of $4,800 helped a member to increase her fruits and vegetables stock to resell.

Mt Uluguru Group's story

Lilian, who is in her late 30s, is married and has three children who go to school. She also looks after one relative (an orphan). She has been running a genge business (fruits and vegetable) since 2004. She works from 4 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily, and she is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be her 11th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to build a display frame for her business, to buy a TV and DVD deck and to pay for household expenses and school fees; she has paid back all her loans successfully. She hopes for a loan to increase the stock of fruits and vegetables to resell. Her dream is to one day be able to build her own family house.

She will share this loan with her loan group, Mt Uluguru, which totals 13 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Lilian, Saven, Sabnus, Rose, Mgeni, Frank, Ibrahim, Zainabu, Theresia, Ashura, Aisha, Sophia, Ester
