Peacock Group's story

Epimack, who is in his mid 30s, is married with two children who are still going to school. He has been running a GengeDuka (a retail shop selling fruits and vegetables) and in the same shop, he sells sugar, salt, beans, maize flour, cooking oil, cigarettes, baking flour, etc. He works from 5 am to mid-night daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Epimack's seventh loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loans to open the fruits and vegetables shop. He continued to increase his business stock whenever he got a new loan. He is doing great. He has paid back all his loans successfully. He used the profit to buy a radio and TV set, build a small house, pay household expenses and school fees. He will use this loan to buy more fruits, vegetable and dry foods like sugar, beans, maize flour, baking flour etc. He dreams of having a big shop to sell the same items in big qualities.

Epimack will share this loan with his loan group "Peacock", which has seven members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Epimack, Matilda, Helena, Pendo, Aisha, Rhoda, Heavenlighty
