A loan of $5,350 helped a member to buy more meat and sell to more people.

Mikoroshini Group's story

Roy, who is in her early 40s, is single with two children who are going to school. She has been running a butcher business since 1990. She works from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Roy's fifth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy a better meat cutter, increase her meat stock, repair the shop door, paint and put up wall tiles and buy most of the things that are needed to make cutting meat easier. She has paid back all her loans successfully.

Roy has used her profits to pay school fees and rent on her house and shop and to cover household expenses. She will use this loan to buy more meat and sell to more people. Her dream is to one day be able to buy a plot of land.

Roy will share this loan with her loan group, Mikoroshini, whose 14 members will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Roy , Asma, Juma, Thomas, Anneth, Rose, Shida, Husna, Neema, Rose, Mwanaisha, John, Grace, Ester
