Sisi Kwa Sisi Group's story

Regina, who is in her mid thirties, is married with a boy who is in school. For three years now, Regina has been running a grocery business selling water, sodas, beers, juices and spirits. She is also selling bites, such as groundnuts, cashew nuts, and donuts. She starts working from mid day to 11 p.m. daily, and is able to make good returns per month. This will be her 4th loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. Regina used her previous loans to purchase grocery stocks, such as beers, waters, spirits, and sodas, which resold to more people. She also made more bites that resold. Regina has paid back all her loans successfully, and with the business profit, she built a house and covered school fees and some home expenses.

She will use this loan to buy more empty bottles and new demanded drinks, and restock the out-of-stock drinks. She dreams that one day she will be able to expand her business and sell more drinks.

Regina will share this loan with her loan group" Sisi kwa Sisi," which consists of 10 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Regina, Rehema, Vicky, Rahel, Salma, Neema, Brown, Mohamed, Ndealilia, Nuru
