A loan of $4,450 helped a member to buy more milk and sweet potatoes.

Tufaidi Group's story

The borrower, who is in his early 30s, is single. He has been selling milk for three years now. He works from 4:00 in the morning and sells up to 10:00 pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be his third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to buy more milk and managed to sell to many customers. He also started selling sweet potatoes as bites. So when he boils milk he also fries sweet potatoes and he sells them as bites. He used the profit to take care of himself to cover household expenses. He will use this loan to buy more milk and sweet potatoes. His dream is to one day be able to build his own house.

He will share this loan with his loan group "Tufaidi" with fourteen members, who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Adam, Rose, Asnati, Asha, Tatu, Sauda, Bahati*, Cecilia, Elizabeth, Farida, Hadija, Mwajuma, Judith, Asha
