Makongo Kk Group's story

Justina - who is in her early 30s - is married with three children, one son and two daughters, all of whom go to school. She has been running two businesses, selling charcoal and sells vitumbua. She has been in business for six years now. This will be Justina's third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy more sacks of charcoal, some kilos of rice, a bucket of cooking oil and a few kilos of sugar (all these items used for making vitumbua) as well as paid school fees and covered household expenses. She has paid back all her loans successfully. She will use this loan to buy more sacks of charcoal, some kilos of rice and to pay school fees. Her dream is to one day be able to finish building her house. Justina will share this loan with her loan group, "Makongo Kk”, which has 11 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Justina, Deo, Hamisa, Felista, Paulo, Adam, Jummanne, Tosigwegwe, Happy, Fransisca, Hadija
