New Africa Group's story

Tunu, who is in her early 50s, is married with six children and all of them go to school. She has been running a business selling dry food like sugar, beans, baking flour, wheat flour, salt etc for six years now. She works from 9.00 am to 4.00 pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Tunu's fifth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to restock the items which were out of stock, started selling clothes door-to-door and has paid back all her loans successfully. She used the profit to pay school fees, bought a plot of land, started building her house and covered household expenses. She will use this loan to buy more rice, beans, sugar, flour, salt and to buy more clothes to sell door-to-door. Her dream is to one day be able to finish building her house.

Tunu will share this loan with her loan group "New Africa" with eleven members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Tunu, Benitho, Leon, Clement, Method, Salome, Mbwana, Salmin, Muhidin, Ndika*, Kadogo
