A loan of $5,500 helped a member to buy chickens which are mostly demanded by her chips customers.


Monrovia Group's story

Zainabu, who was born in the early 1960s, is married with three boys and a girl, who are in school. For seven years now, Zainabu has had two food businesses. She has a fruits and vegetable business, working from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily, and a chips business, where she has a helper from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. She usually joins work with her helper after closing her genge business. Zainabu is able to make a good profit per month.

This is her tenth loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania, which will be used to buy chickens which are mostly demanded by her chips customers. With the previous loans, all of which paid back successfully, she bought sacks of Irish potatoes, cooking oil and eggs. She used her business profit to cover school fees and home expenses. Zainabu wishes to one day be in a position to finish building her house.

Zainabu will share this loan with her loan group, "Monrovia", which totals 14 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Zainabu, Hidaya, Asma, Joyce, Sarah, Anthon, Adipenda, Asha, Mariam, Stella, Fatuma, Selina, Mohamed, Jamila
