A loan of $3,550 helped a member to buy more drinks including sodas, juice and water to resell.

Tupendane C Group's story

Emanuel, who is in his mid-30's, is a married father of two young children. He has been selling a variety of foods and drinks such as sodas, juice, water, chips, fried chicken, miskaki and eggs for 10 years now. He has a second similar shop run by an employee, although Emanuel still monitors and supervises the shop. Working from 10:00 am until after midnight, he is able to make a very good profit per month.

This will be Emanuel's 10th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used his previous loans, all since repaid, to purchase a motorcycle, a fridge, and inventory for his businesses. He used his profits to buy a radio, a sofa set, and a plot of land, and has built a small house at his village place. He will use this loan to buy more drinks including sodas, juice and water to resell. Emanuel dreams of owning a wholesale shop and is so happy with the loans which have allowed him to improve his life.

Emanuel will share this loan with his loan group "Tupendane C," which has nine members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Emanuel, Mariam, Jullieth, Mwanaisha, Rukia, Halima, Agatha, Halima, Mwanahamis
