Orange Group's story

Mariam, who is in her early 40s, is married with five children, two of them are grown-up and the other three are still at school. She has been running several businesses like, a grocery, selling beers, sodas, juice, water, spirits, and selling fish as well as chapati for two and a half years now. She works from 6.00 am to 9.00 pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Mariam's 4th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to restock the missing items in the grocery store, bought more fish and bought baking flour and cooking oil. She is really doing great and appreciates the loan. She has paid back all her loans successfully. She used the profit to pay for school fees and household expenses. She will use this loan to increase the stock in her grocery and to buy more fish to resell and chapati. She dreams of building her own house.

Mariam will share this loan with her loan group "ORANGE" which has five members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Mariam, Asha, Qeen, Rehema, Musa
