A loan of $2,700 helped a member to increase the stock in her business.


Uhuru Group's story

Zaika, who is in her mid-30s, is divorced from her husband. She is taking care of her three children who are in school. She has had a business selling clothes door-to-door for period of three years now. She is doing fine in this project and the family also. Zaika works from 6am to 4pm daily and she is able to earn a small profit per month.

This will be Zaika's third loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loans, all of which she paid back successfully, she managed to increase her business stocks to attract more customers. With the income generated, she covered the family's basic needs together with school fees. She will use this loan to increase the stock in her business. She dreams of having good accommodation and building a nice house.

She will share this loan with her loan group "UHURU" which totals 10 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Zakia, Reconciliator, Bitumi, Basilisa, Julieth, Frola, Mwanaidi, Judith*, Upendo, Nora
