A loan of $5,050 helped a member to buy more sacks of charcoal and restock the missing items in the stationary shop.


Rufiji Group's story

Subira, who is in her early 30s, is married with two children; one of them goes to school and the other one is still small. She has been running two businesses, selling charcoal and a stationary shop. She works from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily and is able to make a very good monthly profit.

This will be Subira's 7th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to open a stationary shop and increase on the charcoal stock, and has paid back all her loans successfully. She will use this loan to buy more sacks of charcoal and restock the missing items in the stationary shop. She used the interest to buy iron sheets, paid school fees and covered household expenses. She dreams of building her own house as she has already bought a plot of land.

Subira will share this loan with her loan group "RUFIJI", with 27 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Subira, Msaraka, Furaha S, Kinyogoli , Jema, Asinati, Mwamshindo, Amina, Nuru, Salum, Josephine, Doto, Kinyogoli .., Idd, Salumu, Omary, Asia, Aziza, Zaituni, Rehema, Saada, Azizi, Viliberti, Tatu, Kea, Juma..., Rashidi
