Faith Group's story

Eliasi is a married man in his mid-30s with three children who are in school. For the past four years he has been running two food businesses, Cafe and Chips. He works from 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. daily and is able to make a fair profit each month.

This will be Eliasi’s sixth loan through Tujijenge Tanzania; his previous loans were all paid back successfully. He is applying for a 6,590,000 TZS to be shared by his loan group "Faith," which totals fifteen members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

With his previous loan portions Eliasi added a super-sport dish for football fans and other related games and programs to attract more customers. He also restocked food items like sodas, water, juices, meat, fish and bananas .

With his profits he bought a plot of land upon which he expects to start building, covered school fees and bought a cupboard for his home. He plans to use this loan to repair his business premises and restock inventory. His ambition is to be able to build a house and expand his businesses.
