A loan of $3,800 helped a member to restock the missing food items in her shop..


Mt Elgon Group's story

Siliviana is a married woman who is running a retail food shop, selling items like rice, maize flour, baking flour, beans, sugar, salts and other food items. She is running this project together with her husband, who in the previous month was involved in a motorcycle accident, but he is showing a good recovery.

Siliviana is currently aged in her 40s and has five children: three sons and two daughters who are enrolled in school. She starts working from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily and is able to make a fair profit per month.

This will be her first loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. She will use this loan to restock the missing food items in her shop. She dreams that one day, she will be able to widely expand her business.

She will share this loan with her loan group, Mt. Elgon, which totals 10 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Siliviana, Ester, Elizabeth, Paythogras, Rosemary, Getruda, Prisca, Aisha, Ramadhan, Vivian
