A loan of $5,725 helped a member to buy the missing items for her small shop.


Makuti A Group's story

Veronica, who is in her early 40s, is married with five children of whom all are in school (one is in college and the other four are in secondary). For twenty years now, Veronica has been supporting her family in coordination with her husband by running a 'genge' (small shop) selling fruits and vegetables. She works from 7 am to 4 pm daily and is able to make a good profit per month.

This will be her 17th loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania, She used the previous loans to buy more 'genge' items like tomatoes, sacks of onions, coconuts, and more vegetables with high demand. She bought two fridges to put in her new retail shop she opened. With the profit from the business, Veronica paid school fees for her children and also home expenses. She will use this loan to buy the missing 'genge' items. She dreams that one day she will be able to own a wholesale business.

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

In this group: Veronica, Lilian, Severina, Hermani, Fatuma, Teresia, Asha, Mwanaheri, Mariam, Maimuna, Matilda
