A loan of $2,600 helped a member to start selling beers.

Mikoroshini-1A Group's story

Rose, a single woman with a son who is in school, has been running a mamalishe business, offering food services and soft drinks for five years now. Rose, who is in her mid-30s, works from 5am to 10pm daily and is able to receive a good profit per month.

This is Rose's tenth loan request with Tujijenge Tanzania which she will use to start selling beers. With the previous loans, all of which she managed to pay back successfully, she bought food-cooking items, like some kilos of rice, meat, tomatoes, onions, cooking oil, and flour. She replaced the old business equipment, like a gas stove instead of charcoal, and she bought chairs, tables, a refrigerator, and a TV.

The profit generated from her business will be used to cover more school fees and home expenses. Rose also started building a house. She dreams that, one day, she will be able to finish building her family house.

Rose will share this loan with her loan group, Mikoroshini-1A Group, which totals six members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Rose, Rose, Juma, Shida, Thomas, Ester
