A loan of $4,625 helped a member to buy more food items: sacks of rice, cooking oil, maize flour, sodas.

Upendo-Oysterbay Group's story

Hassani, who is in his late 20s, is married with two kids - a boy and a girl who are in school. For six months now, Hassani has been running a shop selling rice, cooking oil, maize and baking flour, soaps, kerosene, water, soda, juices and other consumable and durable items. He works from 6am to 10pm daily and is able to make a fair return per month.

This will be his first loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania, which he will use to buy more food items, sacks of rice, cooking oil, maize flour, and sodas. Hassani dreams that one day he will be able to open a wholesale shop. Hassani will share this loan with his loan group "Upendo-Oysterbay" which has 12 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Hassani, Sarah, Egla, Scola, Stella, Rehema, Lydia, Imakulata, Helena, Elizabeth, Fatuma, Agnes
