A loan of $4,325 helped a member to restock food items in her store.


Mtamakulanga Group's story

Devetha is in her late 20s and married with two children, one of whom is going to school. For the past two years, she has been running a food-vending business. Devetha is doing great with her business. She works from six thirty in the morning through seven thirty at night and is able to make a small profit. Devetha is requesting her second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used her previous loan to buy more cooking items. Devetha has repaid her loan successfully and she used her profit to cover home expenses and school fees.

Devetha is the leader of a group loan. Her loan group, “Mtamakulanga,” consists of 14 members who will hold each other accountable for repaying the loan. Devetha will use her portion of the loan to restock missing items in her store. In the future, she dreams of building a business premise instead of renting.

In this group: Devetha, Markus, Matiku, Veronica, Wangi*, Wairanga*, Asha, Swaumu, Mwera, Mary, Dickson, Angelina, Agnes, Maria
