A loan of $3,025 helped a member to buy a butcher cow and more grocery store drinks to resell.


Serena Group's story

ASHA, who is in her mid 50's, is a widow with seven children, of whom only four are in school. Three of the children are adults, and depend on themselves.

For twenty years now, ASHA has been running her life by managing a butcher business selling meats. She is doing fine with her project, and it shows. She works from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily, and is able to make a very good profit per month.

This is her 16th loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loans, all of which were paid back successfully, she bought more butcher meat and opened a grocery business, which is run by her daughters. With the profit received, she covered school fees and home expenses, built a house and reinvested in the business. The remaining amount she decided to save for her future.

ASHA will use this loan to buy a butcher cow and more grocery store drinks to resell. She dreams of owning a nice, private car.

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

In this group: Asha, Ramadhani, Ashura, Hassani, Abdalah, Subira, Asma, Aziza, Mary, Asha, Ally
