A loan of $5,000 helped a member to buy more chicks and chicken feed.

Two In One Group's story

Mariam, who is in her late 30s, is married with five children. Three of them are at school and the two are still small. She has been running a poultry business for eight years now. She works from 6am to 6pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Mariam's first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania, which she wants to use for buying more chicks and chicken feed. She dreams of opening a shop where she can sell fresh juice from sugar cane.

Mariam will share this loan with her loan group "Two in One" which has five members who will hold each other accountable for repaying the loan.

In this group: Mariam, Sion, Flora, Anna, Ester
