A loan of $2,100 helped a member to increase inventory of vegetables and fruits.

Orange Group's story

Kabeni, who is in his early 50s, is married and has five children: two boys and three girls. All of them are still attending school. For the past year, he has been earning a living by operating a Genge (fruits and vegetables) business. He works from 7:00 am to 9:00 pm daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be his twelfth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used his previous loans to increase his inventory and to start selling dry food in the same place. He sells items such as sugar, salt, beans, backing flour, wheat flour, cooking oil, etc. Now his business is called Genge Duka (fruits, vegetables, and the dry food in the same shop). He has managed to pay back all of his loans successfully. He will use this loan to increase his inventory of vegetables and fruits. His dream is to one day be able to own a big retail shop.

Kabeni will share this loan with his loan group "Orange," which has 11 members who hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Kabeni, Nicholaus, Rehema, Halima, Maya, Musa, Asha, Mariam, Emanuel, Tabia, Marce
