Riziki Group's story

Helena, who was born late 1970s, is married with four children, all of whom are in school. For twelves years now, Helena has been running a genge-duka business selling fruits and vegetables and sweets, maize flour, baking flour, soaps of different kinds, etc. She sells all of these items at the same shop. Helena works from 6am to 10pm daily and is able to earn a small profit per month.

This will be her 15th loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. Helena used her previous loans to restock more genge-duka items and has paid back all her previous loans successfully. With the profit earned, she has covered school fees, household expenses and bought a plot of land where she built a house. She also added another room. Helena will use this loan to restock more on her genge-duka items (fruits, vegetables, sweets, maize flour, baking flour ,etc). Helena dreams that one day she will be in a position to do international business.

Helena will share this loan with her loan group" riziki " which has 11 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Helena, Rashidi, Filipina, Adam, Elisi, Ester, Tomlesia, Fredrick, Gabriel, Asia, Hamadi
