A loan of $2,400 helped a member to increase his inventory with more sacks of rice, sugar and buckets of cooking oil.


Kulangwa Group's story

Said, who is in his early forties, is a married man with four children (with gender balance) who are in school. Since 1989, after he finished primary school, Said has been managing his life by running a food shop business. He works from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily and is able to make a good profit per month.

This will be Said's seventh loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania . With the previous loans, all of which he paid back successfully, he increased the shop's inventory with new foods which he previous lacked in his shop. With the profit earned, he covered family expenses, school fees and the children's bus fare to school. Said will use this loan to increase his inventory with more sacks of rice, sugar and buckets of cooking oil. He dreams to one day be able to have his own business premises to avoid paying high rent.

He will share this loan with his loan group Kulangwa, which has 10 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Said, Sagila, Anjelina, Renatus, Mohamed, Fatuma, Halima, Mwanaid, Joseph, Martha
