A loan of $3,600 helped a member to increase more on food stock items.


Faraja Mavurunza Group's story

Jamila is married with three children (two boys and a girl) who are in school. She is in her mid 30s. For ten years now, Jamila has been running a food business. She is working hard and it shows. She works from 7am to 6pm daily and is able to earn a good profit per month.

This will be her 17th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy a plot of land, where she finished building her family house, bought more business inventory, and paid school fees and household expenses, and she has paid back all her loans successfully. She wants a loan to increase more on food stock items. Her dream is to one day be open another food business center.

She will share this loan with her loan group, "Faraja Mavurunza", which has a total of 14 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Jamila, Monica, Josephine, Juma, Raha, Nuru, Asia, Leonia, Wilson, Hussein, Asha*, Grace, Vicky, Johari
