A loan of $4,450 helped a member to buy more restaurant items to make more food.


Wastara Group's story

Doris, who is in her early 20s, is married and has two children (a boy and a girl); one child goes to school and the other is still a baby. Doris has been running two businesses selling fabrics (vitenge) and also running mamalishe (a restaurant) for three years. She works from 6AM TO 4PM daily and she is able to make a good monthly profit. She requests a third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy more fabric, increased the food items in her restaurant and covered household expenses, and she has paid back all her loans successfully. She requests a new loan to buy more restaurant items to make more food to resell to more customers. Her dream is to one day be able to build a nice house for her family. She will share this loan with her loan group "Wastara", which totals 18 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Doris, Magreth, Hadija, Fatuma, Faida, Hadija, Stewat, Mwamvita, Nassra, Nuru, Neema, Edson, Asha, Zainabu, Ashura, Yusuph, Hadija, Latifa
