Fanaka Group's story

Winifrida,who is in her late 20s, is married and lives with her husband. She has been a tailor since 2008. She works from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily and is able to make a good monthly income.

This will be her eighth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans, which she paid back successfully, to purchase more clothing material, a home mattress, television, radio and tailoring machines. She requests a new loan to buy more material to make more clothes to sell. Her dream is to one day be able to increase the tailoring machines and employ more people.

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

In this group: Winifrida, Ossy, Augustino, Ally, Ndeshi, Raubati, Sheila, Bahati, Doto, Abdurahmani, Fatuma, Maua, Zainabu, Salma
