Mikoroshini 1B Group's story

John, who is in his early 30s, is single with one daughter who is in school. For two years now, John has been running a food business selling chips. He works from 8 am to 11 pm daily and is able to make a small return per month. John is working hard to see his family's life become better especially his daughter's. This is John's fifth loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. He will use the loan to buy new business chairs and repair his business place ('banda la chips'). With the previous loans, all of which were paid back successfully, he managed to buy more business food items- Irish potatoes,meat and eggs which were used to make more chips. With the profit received from the business, he covered school fees and family expenses. John dreams that one day he will be able to own a big shop selling food items. He will share this loan with his loan group "Mikoroshini 1b" which consists of seven members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: John, Asma, Neema, Mwanaisha, Mkami G, Anneth, Husna
