A loan of $3,300 helped a member to buy more genge (grocery hut) inventory.


Topi Group's story

Tatu, who is in her early 30s, is a single woman with two children (a boy and a girl) who are in school. For a period of five years now, Tatu has been managing her family expenses by running a grocery hut selling fruits and vegetables. She says that it is a good business to be in. She works from 07am to 9pm daily and is able to make a fair profit per month.

This will be her 4th loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loans, all of which paid back successfully, she managed to increase her store inventory. With the profits earned she covered school fees and family expenses. She will use this loan to buy more genge (grocery hut) stocks. Tatu dreams to buy a plot of land and build a nice house.

She will share this loan with her loan group "TOPI" which totals 14 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Tatu, Imakulata, Paulo, Asia, Jamila, Rozi, Devota, Sophia, Magret, Paulo, Tabu, Jonas, Florida, Halima
