A loan of $3,350 helped a member to buy more chicken, cooking oil and charcoal for the business.


Jiungeni Group's story

Zulfa is in her mid 30s, widowed with five children. Two of her children are grown-ups and three are still going to school. She has been buying broiler chicken which she fries and then sells. She works from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be her sixth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy more stock of chicken. She started with five pieces but now she can manage to buy thirty pieces. She has paid back all of her loans successfully. She used the profit to pay school fees and cover household expenses. She is doing fine and is happy with the loan which has helped her to make a living without a husband. She will use the loan to buy more chicken, cooking oil and charcoal for the business. Her dream is to one day build her own house.

Zulfa will share this loan with her loan group "Jiungeni" with nine members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Zulfa, Elias, Ramadhani, Moses, Burton, Mohamed, Francis, Fidelis, Emmanuel
