A loan of $2,750 helped a member to buy chicken feed and insecticide.

Malengo Group's story

Jackson, who is in his late 30s, is married and has two children, one boy and one girl. Both of them are still going to school. He has been running different types of businesses, poultry and milk selling, for six years now. He works from 5.00 am to 6.00 pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Jackson's 15th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to start all his businesses. He used to have a garden, where he planted and sold vegetables. Then he bought chicks, fed them until adulthood, and sold them at a good price. He bought a calf, fed it until it became a big cow, and now he sells milk in plenty. He has managed to repay all his loans successfully. He used the profits to build two houses and covered his household's living expenses. He will use this new loan to buy chicken feed and insecticide. His dream is to become an international businessman.

Jackson will share this loan with his loan group, Malengo, which has 15 members in total, who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Jackson, Lilian, Molel, Chacha, Mwanaarafa, Peter, Zena, Asma, Mwanaidi, Lusia, Mwajuma, Anastazia, Richard, Christina, Flora
