Jasiri Group's story

Anna who is in her late 30s, is married with three daughters who go to school. She has been running a business of selling food for two years. She works from 6.00 am to 6.00 pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit. This will be Anna's 3rd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to increase the food stock, pay school fees, buy a DVD player, a plot of land for agriculture (maize, sunflower), for household expenses and has paid back all her loans successfully. She wants a loan to buy farming equipment and a fridge for the cafe drinks. Her dream is to be able to build her own house some day. Anna will share this loan with her loan group "Jasiri" which has 14 members, who hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Anna, Mariam, Bakary, Saumu, Jumbe, Devota, Stella, Mariam, Clara, Khadija, Afua, Rehema, Aziza, Elizabeth
