A loan of $3,050 helped a member to buy more fish to resell.

Mloganzila Group's story

Sophia, who is in her early 30s, is a widow woman with four children still attending school. She is able to run her family through having two retail activities. One is fish selling, which starts early at 3:00 a.m., by Sophia traveling a distance to collect fresh fish; thereafter taking them for frying. After having completed the fish activity, she comes back home for selling them up until 3:00 p.m.

She also has a clothes business and sells door to door after the fish business time. She generally does her activities from 3:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily, and is able to make a fair profit per month.

This will be Sophia’s fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loans, all of which she paid back successfully, she managed to sell more fish and started her door-to-door clothes business. With the profit received, she bought a TV and solar power, and paid school fees and household expenses.

Sophia will use this loan to buy more fish to resell. Sophia dreams to one day be able to build a house for renting and to be in a good position for affording school expenses for her kids.

She will share this loan with her loan group" Mloganzila", which totals 11 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Sophia, Yasin, Lidya, Ramadhani, Agness, Shabani, William, Sia, John, Alfredy, Mariam
