Ngano Group's story

Miriam, who is in her early 30s, is married. Together with her husband, she has been blessed with a boy, who is enrolled in school. She is doing fine with her business and family as well.

For three years now, Miriam has had a retail shop enterprise which offers a variety of products, such as dry foods, sugar, salt, flour, soft drinks like juices and soda, etc. She is also selling airtime. She works from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. (night) daily, and she is able to make a good profit per month.

From Tujijenge Tanzania---Miriam: This will be her seventh loan request, which she will use to replenish more highly demanded and necessity items like dry food and sugar, so as to meet customer retention and attraction. With the previous loans, all of which she paid back successfully, she managed to purchase new missing items in her shop and to replace the sold ones with more. With the profit from the business, Miriam covered school fees, home expenses and ploughed back into her enterprise. She dreams one day to be able to expand her enterprise into a big shop with more varieties of products.

She will share this loan with her loan group, “Ngano", which consists of 11 members. Ngano's members will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Miriam, Anna, Olivia, Zubeda, Kimolo, Enock, Samora*, Hajji, Rajabu, Zabibu, Iddi
