New Africa Group's story

Ndika, who is in her mid 20s, is married with two kids, one of whom is in school and one is still a baby. For three years now, Ndika has been managing her family expenses by running a business selling charcoal. Ndika works from 6 am to 7 pm daily and is able to make a good return per month. From Tujijenge Tanzania, this is Ndika's 18th loan, which she will use to buy more sacks of charcoal and to start a shop business selling dry food. She used her previous loans to restock more sacks of charcoal and she has paid back all her previous loans successfully. Ndika used her business profit to buy land where she expects to build a house. She dreams that one day will be able to build a house. She will share this loan with her loan group" New Africa", which includes eight members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Ndika, Benitho, Clement, Salome, Salmin, Method, Mbwana, Muhidin
