A loan of $4,025 helped a member to increase her stock of drinks to sell.

Madona Group's story

Fatuma, who is in her early 30s, is married and has three children, a girl and two boys. Two of the children attend school, and the other is still too young for school. She has been running a grocery business for one year and six months now. She works from 3 pm to 12 midnight daily and is able to make a good profit per month. This will be her third loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loans, all of which were paid back successfully, she bought more soft drinks, beers and spirits. Fatuma also bought salon equipment, two driers and a steamer in preparation for opening a beauty salon. With the profits she earned, she covered school fees and household expenses, and she reinvested in the business and saved the remainder in a bank. She will use this loan to increase her stock of drinks. She dreams of open more grocery stores in other areas. She will share this loan with the other members of Madona Group, which consists of 19 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Fatuma, Rukia, Yusta, Joyce, Shabani, Pamela, Stanford, Shaaban, Maisha, Elias, Victoria, Ayubu, Farida, Abidina, George, Anastazia, Elizabeth, Asilani, Ally
