Tupendane Kongowe Group's story

Omary, who is in his early 40s, is a married man with three children (two boys and a girl) of whom two are in school and the remaining one is still young. Since 2002, Omary has been running a retail business selling foods of different kinds like rice, sugar, salt, maize flour etc. He is doing fine in this field. He works from 8am to 6pm daily and is able to earn a fair profit per month.

This will be his third loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loans, all of which he repaid back successfully, he managed to restock more items in his business and opened another food shop. With the profit earned, he covered home expenses as well as school fees. He will use this loan to increase his food items to meet the increased client demand. He dreams of building a house.

He will share this loan with his loan group "Tupendane Kongowe" which totals 10 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Omary, Mwajuma, Halima, Yusufu, Fatuma, Khadija, Athumani, Steven, Rajabu, Abdallah
