A loan of $4,100 helped a member to buy more out-of-stock products and a popcorn machine.

Ngara Group's story

Juma, who is in his early 30s, is single with a boy who is in school. For five years now, Juma has had a mini-supermarket business. He works from 7am to 10pm each working day and is able to make a very good profit each month.

This is Juma's sixth loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. He will use the loan to buy more out-of-stock products and a popcorn machine. He used his previous loans to replenish his business products and to buy two big business fridges. He has paid back all of his loans successfully. Juma used his profit to pay school fees, to pay for household expenses, to reinvest back into the business, and to save. Juma dreams that one day he will be able to own a big supermarket.

He will share this loan with his loan group "NGARA," which has six members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Juma, Zuhura, Pili, Mariamu, Pauline, Upendo
