A loan of $5,025 helped a member to open another telephone money transfer service (M-pesa).

Agano Group's story

Delister, who is in her 30s, is married with one daughter who is in school. For five years now, Delister has had a retail shop with different activities: telephone money transfer (M-pesa, Tigo pesa, Airtel Money), selling airtime and selling telephone accessories. She is doing fine with her business.
She works from 6 am to 11:30 pm daily and is able to make a very good profit per month.

This will be her 10th loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loans, all of which were repaid successfully, she opened her current M-pesa business, repaired her business premises, bought business equipment like a computer and a cupboard, and put an aluminum door on her business premises.

With the profit, she bought a plot of land, paid school fees, paid part of home expenses and reinvested back into the business. She will use this loan to open another telephone money transfer (M-pesa). She dreams of expanding her business a lot.

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

In this group: Delister, Lilian, Kassim, Catherine, Luvi
