Malila Group's story

Veronica is in her late 20s and is married with two children who are still going to school. She has been a food vendor for one year now. She works from 6:00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m. daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be Veronica's third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to open a shop and to pay the shop's rent. She bought a refrigerator and started selling cold drinks. She restocked the missing items in her food store and has managed to repay all her loans successfully. She used the profits to pay school fees and cover household expenses. She will use this loan to open another place for food vending. Her dream is to one day be able to own a hotel.

Veronica will share this loan with her loan group, "Malila", with 12 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loans.

In this group: Veronica, Catherine, Rehema, Rose, Sabina, Asteria, Omari, Tatu, Furaha, Mohamed, Regina, Juma
