A loan of $3,400 helped a member to restock food items in her shop.


Kakakuona Group's story

Method, who is in her late 20s, is married and has a boy who is in school. For a period of five years now, Method has been earning a living by running a shop, selling different food items like rice, maize flour, sugar, salt, etc. She is doing fine in this project. She works from 6:00am to 9:30pm daily and is able to make a fair profit every month.

This will be her 16th loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to expand her business by purchasing more foods items and by increasing the amount of sugar, rice, etc. With the expansion, she gained more clients. With the profit, she managed to cover household expenses and started building a house for her family. She has paid back all her loans successfully. She will use this loan to restock food items in her shop. She wants to finish building the family's house.

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

In this group: Method, Witress, Vicent, Hamis, Rahel, Thobias, Jema, Frances, Farida, Anna
