A loan of $4,300 helped a member buy food for her restaurant.


Becham Group's story

Veronica, who is in her early 20s, is married and has two boys who are still babies. For five years now Veronica has been managing her family by running a mamalishe business (restaurant). She cooks different type of food like rice with beans and meat, breakfast bites, stiff-porridge with meat, vegetables, fruits and other food. She works from 6:00am to 10:00pm daily and is able to make a good profit per month. This will be Veronica's 5th loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. With her previous loans, all of which were paid back successfully, Veronica restocked more food supplies in her mamalishe business (cooking oil, some kilos of sugar, baking flour, maize flour and rice). With the profit earned from her business, she bought a plot of land and paid some portion of family expenses. Veronica will use this loan to buy more food supplies to prepare more food. She dreams to build a house. Veronica will share this loan with her loan group "BECHAM" which consist of 9 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Veronica, Eva, Johari, Christian, Fausta, Alphonce, Albina, Elizabeth, Dickson
