A loan of $3,850 helped a member to restock his food shop.


Ujamaa Group's story

Hassani, who is in his early 40s, is divorced and staying with his three girls, all of whom are in school. For eight years now, Hassani has been managing his life by running two businesses: a food shop (selling rice, flour, beans, sugar, cooking oil etc.) and a concrete business. He is doing fine with his family and businesses. He starts working from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be his first loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania, which he will use to restock his food shop. Hassani dreams that one day will be able to improve his food business by being able to produce all crops himself.

He will share this loan with his loan group, Ujamaa, which consists of nine members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Hassani, Kassim, Angela, Daud, Leila, Fortunata, Maiko, Onesmo, Bitires
