A loan of $3,150 helped a member to buy more lake fishes to resell to more people..


Kilombero Group's story

Asha, who is in her early 40s, is married with three children who are in school. Since 2010, Asha has been managing her family by running a business selling lake fishes (fresh fish supplier). She works from 10am to 6pm and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This is Asha's 3rd loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used her previous loans to buy more fish, which is supplied to more customers. Her profit was used to cover household expenses and pay for her children's school fees. She has paid all of her previous loans successfully. Asha will use this loan to buy more lake fish to sell to more people. She has planned to own a food selling shop in the future.

She will share this loan with her loan group "Kilombero" which totals two members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Asha, Kiria Brown
