A loan of $5,825 helped a member to buy more sacks of charcoal to resell.


Zingatia Group's story

Lukresia, who is in her mid-30s, is married and has one child who goes to school. She has been selling charcoal for seven years now. She works from 6:15 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. daily and is able to make a small monthly profit. This will be Lukresia's 14th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to increase her charcoal stock, managed to open another charcoal store and has paid back all her loans successfully. Lukresia and her family are really happy with the loan. She used the profit to pay school fees for her child, to cover household expenses, and to buy some bricks and iron sheets. She will use this loan to buy more sacks of charcoal to resell. Her dream is to one day be able to make her charcoal stores extraordinary big. Lukresia will share this with her loan group "Zinatia," which has nine members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Lukresia, Ester, Veronica, Stellah, Hamis, Fredina, Gudila, Sakina, Pastory
