A loan of $4,950 helped a member to increase the inventories of her two businesses, by buying grocery items and fabrics.

Kitulano Group's story

Atanasia, who is in her late 20s, is single and has two children, who go to school. For a period of 18 months, Atanasia has been earning her living by running two different businesses, selling groceries and cloth. She is a really hard-working woman. She works from 4:00 PM to 11:00 PM daily, and she is able to earn a good profit per month.

This will be her third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous two loans to increase her inventories, buying drinks to sell in the grocery business and fabrics to sell in the cloth business. She covered her household's expenses and repaid her previous loans successfully. Now she is requesting a loan to increase the inventories of her two businesses. Her dreams are to be able to build her family a house one day, and to own a big beauty salon.

Atanasia will share this loan with her borrowing group, Kitulano, which totals 25 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Atanasia, Emanuel, Maria, John*, Jonas, Upendo, Rukia, Merry, Martha, Mwivano, Kervin, Habiba, Johari, Josephina, Magreth, Beata, Lemi, Rukia, Victoria, Fabyola, Yusta, Matilda, Annastella, Joha, Shufaa
