A loan of $4,800 helped a member to buy more rice, cooking oil, beans, wheat flour, baking flour, and charcoal.


Zuma Group's story

Happy, who is in her early 30s, is married with two children, one of whom goes to school and the other is a baby. She has been a food vendor for five years; she works from 6.00 am to 6.00 pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit. This will be Happy's fifth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to stock the missing items in the food store. So she managed to cook more food and sell it to more people. She is doing very well. She has paid back all her loans successfully. She used the profit to buy a bed, a mattress, a TV set, a deck, and household expenses. She wants to use this loan to buy more rice, cooking oil, beans, wheat flour, baking flour, and charcoal. She dreams of buying her plot of land and building her own house. Happy will share this loan with her loan group, 'ZUMA', which consists of ten members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Happy, Hassan, Rehema, Yasinta, Cecilia, Ritha, Maclaud, Husna, Audifasi, Said
