A loan of $4,575 helped a member to increase her restaurant food items and clear the outstanding debt on her land.


Momela Group's story

Salma, 38, is a single mother with four children, two of whom are in school. The other two are independent adults. She has had a restaurant business for five years now. She works from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily, and she is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be her third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to purchase a plot of land, liters of cooking oil, sacks of rice, and wheat flour. She also used them to pay for school fees and household expenses. She has paid back all her loans successfully. Salma hopes for a loan to increase her restaurant food items and clear the outstanding debt on her land. Her dream is to one day be able to build a house and provide a better education for her children.

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

In this group: Salma, Elizabeth, Sabina, Merina, Rebeca, Yasin, Amos, Muhsin, Sara, Ayubu
