A loan of $2,625 helped a member buy food and drink items to sell.

Furaha Tegeta Group's story

Leonard, who is in her early 40s, is married and has three children who are still going to school. She has been running several businesses selling cooked food and cold drinks like sodas, beer, juices, water, wine and spirits for four years now. She works from 8 am to midnight daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Leonard's 2nd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to restock the missing items in her cold drinks store and in food store. She has paid back her loan successfully. She used the profit to pay school fees and covered household expenses.

Leonard will use this loan to buy more sodas, juices, beer, wines, spirits, rice, maize flour, meat, chicken and more Irish potatoes for making chips. She dreams of building a guest house.

Leonard will share this loan with her loan group "Furaha Tegeta", which has four members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Leonard, Amina, Pili, Hassan
