A loan of $2,375 helped a member to add more chicks to her poultry business and increase the store of feed for her chickens..


Salasala Group's story

Maua, who is in her late 30s, is married with two boys--one is in school and another is still young. For six years now, Maua has been running two different projects: raising poultry and selling clothes and women's bags up-country. She is doing fine with her businesses. She works from 5 am to 8 pm every working day and is able to earn a small monthly return. This will be her 8th loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loans, all of which she paid back successfully, Maua opened her new clothes and bags business, paid for chicken feed and kept on repairing her chickens' place. She used her profit to pay school fees and part of the house's food expenses. Maua will use this loan to add more chicks to her poultry business and increase the store of feed for her chickens. She dreams that one day she will be able to buy a plot of land where she can conduct her poultry-raising and other farming business. Maua will share this loan with her loan group “Salasala" which has 5 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Maua, Kasian, Juma, Sarah, Felix
