A loan of $2,950 helped a member to restock more genge fruits and vegetables.

Darajani Group's story

Mfanyeje, who is a member of Darajani group, has been running a genge (grocery store) selling fruits and vegetables for seven years. Mfanyeje, who is in her late forties, is married with eight children, only one of whom is in school. The remaining children have grown up; some of them are married and others depend on themselves. Mfanyeje works from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily and is able to make a very good return per month.

This will be Mfanyeje's twentieth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used her previous loans to serve her business by purchasing more fruits and vegetables. She has paid back all of her previous loans successfully. She managed to use her profit to buy a plot of land where she built a house, and she also covered part of home and school expenses. Mfanyeje will use this loan to restock more genge fruits and vegetables. She dreams of improving her business by selling more food items.

She will share this loan with her loan group Darajani, which consists of 10 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Mfanyeje, Sophia, Fatuma, Mina, Nuru, Christina, Aisha, Amina, Neema, Emiliana
