Mistubish Group's story

Elizabeth, who is in her mid-thirties, is married with two sons who are still going to school. She has been running a food-vending business for three years now. She works from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. daily and is able to make a small monthly profit. This will be Elizabeth's fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to restock missing items in the food store, bought more sodas, juice and water, and bought a blender to make fresh juice. She has managed to pay back all her loans successfully. She used the profit to pay school fees and covered household expenses. Elizabeth will use this loan to buy more chairs, increase the stock of baking flour, beans, cooking oil, and rice, and to buy more sodas and water. She dreams of owning a big hotel. Elizabeth will share this loan with her loan group "Mistubish." The group of 14 members will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Elizabeth, Mwajuma, Mariamu, Sophia, Leninida, Hilda, Amina, Mariam, Tezra, Arafa, Rose, Iddy, Subira, Devotha
