A loan of $2,650 helped a member to buy chairs and tables for the grocery, and more drinks.

Karibu View Group's story

Dorica, who is in her early 40s, is married with three children who are still going to school. She has been running two businesses: dagaa (fried small fish) and a grocery. She works from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Dorica's eighth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy more stock of fried dagaa (very small fish) and to restock the out-of-stock drinks in the grocery inventory. She has paid back all her loans successfully. She used the profit to buy a plot. She really appreciates the loan, which used to be weekly but now it has gone to bi-weekly. She is also happy that the percent of interest rate has gone down. She is really doing great. She will use this loan to buy chairs and tables for the grocery and more drinks. She dreams of opening a supermarket.

Dorica will share this loan with her loan group "Karibu View," which has eight members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Dorica, Madina, Jane, Maua, Naomi, Habiba, Tabu, Mwajabu
