A loan of $4,900 helped a member to buy more cafe water to sale.


Imarika Group's story

Abdahal is a micro entrepreneur who has been running a café selling juices, water, milk, and food for six years. He is a married man in his late 30s with four children ( two boys and two girls); three are in school while one is finished with school. He works from 6am to 6pm daily, and is able to earn a good profit each month.

This will be his fifth loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loans, all of which have been repaid, he managed to increase missing cafe items like water. With the profit, he covered household expenses and started building a house. He will use this loan to buy more cafe water to sell. He dreams one day to be able to buy a big fridge and start selling ice cream.

He will share this loan with his loan group 'IMARIKA', which totals 14 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Abdalah, Juma, Kenethy, Iddi, Albert, Abdu, Athma, Athumani, Mayasa, Suleiman, Mrisho, Adam, Pazi, Haji
