Imarika Group's story

ATHMA, who is in her early 20s, is married with two children who go to school. She has been running a genge-duka (selling fruits and vegetables in the same shop). She also sells sugar, salt, beans, wheat flour, baking flour and cooking oil.

This will be ATHMA's 2nd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to restock on the items missing at her business, and she is doing very fine. She has paid back her loan successfully. She used the profit to buy a bed and a mattress, and to pay school fees and household expenses.

She will use this loan to buy more fruit, vegetables, sugar, salt, beans, wheat flour, baking flour and cooking oil. Her dream is to one day be able to expand her business into a grocery.

ATHMA will share this loan with her loan group "IMARIKA" with eleven members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Athma, Juma, Kenethy, Iddi, Albert, Abdu, Athumani, Mayasa, Suleiman, Adam, Abdalah
