A loan of $4,800 helped a member to buy more stock of food to sell to more people.


Msasani Group's story

Rukia, who is in her mid-twenties, is a widow with two children. One of her children goes to school. She has been a food vendor for six years now. She works from 5:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be her seventh loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to pay school fees and buy missing items in the food store. She has paid back all of her loans successfully. She wants a loan to buy more stock of food in order to sell to more people. Her dream is to one day be able to own a beauty salon.

She will share this loan with her loan group, Msasani, which has a total of 12 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Rukia, Christina, Lucy, Thuluma, Khadija, Anna, Chuki, Alphonsi, Sharifa, Mohamed, Frida, Neema
