Tanzanite Group's story

From Tujijenge Tanzania, Asha, who is in her late 40s, is a married mother of four children, two of whom are in school. For a period of six years now, Asha has been operating a restaurant, offering a variety of food services (breakfast, lunch and sometimes supper). She works from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, and is able to make a good monthly profit.



This will be Asha's 16th loan. She used the previous loans, all since repaid, to purchase a plot of land upon which she hopes to build a house, bought bed mattresses, a sofa set, and a cupboard for clothes. She also paid household expenses as well as school fees. She is now requesting a loan to buy more food stocks and items for her restaurant business.



Asha will share this loan with her loan group " Tanzanite," composed of 17 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Asha, Nashon, Juma, Obadia, Hamisa, Mwajuma, Chongera, Alex, Felista, Edmund, Mwamvita, Mafunda, Slyvia, Domina, Leah, Siwema, Respicius
