A loan of $2,900 helped a member to buy more meat to sell at his butcher shop.

Wang'ae Group's story

Protas, who is in his early 30s, is married and has two children, who are in school. For five years Protas has been running a butcher shop, selling beef. He starts working at 6:00 AM and closes at 6:00 PM daily, and he is able to make a fair return per month.

This will be Protas's 12th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He will use it to buy more meats to sell at his shop. He used his previous loans, both to buy more meat and to equip himself to begin slaughtering animals at his own place. He has managed to repay all of his previous loans, successfully. He is doing great in his butcher shop.

With the business profit he expects to earn, Protas will cover school fees, home expenses, and start building a house. Protas dreams that one day, he will be able to buy more cows from different up-countries. He will share this loan with his loan group, Wang'ae, which is comprised of 14 members. The members will hold each other accountable for paying back the group's loan.

In this group: Protas, Fatihia, Salum, Stanley, Tina, Mohamedi, Mwinchumu, Hamis, Nassoro, Anna, Wiltos, Solomoni, Kadiri, Mwajuma
