A loan of $3,000 helped a member to buy more fish to resell.


Mapatano 2 Group's story

Zuhura, who is in her early 40s, is single with two children who are still going to school. She has been selling fish for two years now. She works from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm daily and is able to make a very good monthly profit.

This will be Zuhura's fifth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy a freezer for keeping fish fresh. She also bought more fish from upcountry. She has special customers who she calls to come and buy fish, and immediately she gets them. She is really doing great. She has paid back all her loans successfully. She used the profit to pay school fees and cover household expenses. She wants a loan to buy more fish to resell. She dreams of buying her own place for selling her fish and buying another freezer.

Zuhura will share this loan with her loan group "Mapatano 2", which has seven people who will hold eachother accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Zuhura, Ally, Juma, Salimu, Leila, Carolin, Enilika
