Wazo Tegeta Group's story

Filbert, born in the mid-1970s, is married with two children, a daughter and a son. One of the children is in school and another is still young. Filbert has been running three enterprises: a pharmacy and two money transfer businesses (M-Pesa and Tigo Pesa) for six months as well as a dry food shop for eight years now. Filbert is a college student undertaking tourism studies, so he has employed helpers in his businesses.

His business activities start from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily and he is able to earn a very good return per month. This will be his fifth loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. He will use the loan to repair his business premises and invest in his Tigo Pesa business. He used the previous loans to restock more foods items, open a pharmacy and start his M-Pesa and Tigo Pesa businesses. The profits he receives will be used to cover household expenses and school fees. He dreams of building a house.

Filbert will share this loan with his loan group "Wazo Tegeta," which totals seven members, who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Filbert, Jafari, Prisca, Sophia, Olipa, Agia, Jeijei
