A loan of $2,550 helped a member to buy more freshwater fish to resell.

Kilombero Group's story

Kwirabi, who is in her late thirties, is married, with two children, a boy and a girl, both in school.

For three years now, Kwirabi has been running a business selling freshwater fish, which she buys from lake zones. She starts working from 4:00 a.m. and works to 7:00 p.m. per working day and is able to make an excellent profit.

This will be her fifth loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. Kwirabi used her previous loans to buy more freshwater fish and bought a business freezer for her fish. She managed to pay back all her previous loans successfully.

With the business profit she received, she paid school fees for her children, paid household expenses, reinvested back in her business, and saved the remaining to her bank account.

Kwirabi will use this loan to buy more freshwater fish to resell. She dreams that one day she will be able to build a house and became a known business person.

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: Kwirabi, Rehema
