A loan of $5,550 helped a member to buy more fruits, vegetables, radios, telephones, and housing and door handles.


Manzese A Group's story

John, who is in his early 30s, is single with one daughter who goes to school. He has been selling different items such as fruits, vegetables, radios, telephone covers, and door handles for two years now. He works from 8.00 a.m. to 9.00 p.m. daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be John's second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loan to restock some needed items in his business, covered household expenses and school fees, and paid back his loan successfully. He wants a loan to buy more fruits, vegetables, radios, telephone covers, and door handles. His dream is to one day be able to build his own house.

John will share this loan with his loan group, Manzese A, which has 18 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: John, Faustine, Selemani*, Sada, Mariamu, Mary, Amina, Juma, Zena, Victoria, Said, Almas, Abdalah, Anthony, Yussufu, Stamili, Salma, Leah
