A loan of $3,650 helped a member to restock her genge business with more items.


Mt Rungwe Group's story

Habiba, a married woman in her mid-40s, has four children who are in school. For a period of seven years she has been running a genge business (grocery hut) selling fruits and vegetables. Habiba works from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm daily and is able to make a fair profit per month.

This will be her 6th loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loans, all of which were paid back successfully, she managed to restock her business with more fruits and vegetables. With the profit she received, she bought a plot and covered household expenses. Habiba will use this loan to restock her genge business with more items.

She dreams of owning commercial cattle like cows for meat and milk selling, goats, and sheep for meat selling. She would be able to do this from the plot of land she purchased.

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

In this group: Habiba, Neema, Halima, Abdala, Hassani, Tabu, Ramadhani, Tatu, Salama, Zamzam
