A loan of $1,525 helped a member to increase her stock of rice.


Mzimuni Group's story

Jane, a member of the Mzimuni group, has been managing her family by running a business selling rice up-country. She has been in this business for a period of three years now. Jane, who is in her late 30s, is married with seven children (three girls and four boys) who are in school. She is doing fine in this field and the family is also. She works from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily and is able to make a good profit per month.

This will be her sixth loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loans, all of which she paid back successfully, she managed to purchase more sacks of rice, which she resold to more clients in other regions. With the profit earned, she covered school fees for her children, covered home costs and reinvested into the business. She will use this loan to increase her stock of rice. Jane dreams to expand her rice business more.

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

In this group: Jane, Pazi, Fatuma, Maulid, Doris, Edina, Mkomi, Kado
