A loan of $5,775 helped a member to replenish the inventory in her retail food shop.


Kichangani Group's story

Christina is a married woman in her early 60s with four children (three of them in school). She has been managing her family by running a food shop selling different food items. She has been in this business since 2011. She is doing fine in her project and family as well. She works from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily and is able to make a good profit each month.

This will be Christina's 16th loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loans, all of which she repaid successfully, she managed to increase the foods she sells to meet her customers' demands and bought a wheelbarrow for luggage carrying. With the profit earned, she bought a plot of land, where she expects to build a house, and paid school fees and home expenses. She will use this loan to replenish the food inventory in her retail shop. She dreams of building a nice house.

She will share this loan with her loan group, "Kichangani," which totals 20 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loan.

In this group: Christina, Mwanahamis, Hassani, Grace, Anifa, Asha, Upendo, Mariam, Latifa, Mary, Magreth, Tawhilda, Maimuna, Spesioza, Sesily, Sharifa, Alice, Aisha, Rose, Mariam
