A loan of $3,500 helped a member to increase her stock of genge (fruits and vegetables) to sell.

Imani Group's story

Magreth, who is in her early 40s, is married and has three children, who are in school. Since 2007, Magreth has been earning a living by running two businesses, a restaurant and a business selling genge (fruits and vegetables). She works from 6am to 3pm daily, and she is able to make a fair monthly profit.

She has requested a second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to buy restaurant food items (such as wheat flour, cooking oil, and 25kg of rice) and to pay school fees, and she has paid back all her loans successfully. She wants a loan to increase her stock of genge. Her dream, one day, is to be able to provide a better education for her children.

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

In this group: Magreth, Niku, Edda, Hawa, Modesta, Husna, Asha, Clement, Denis, Shedrack, Maka, Leonard, Maria, Laurence
