A loan of $1,025 helped a member to buy 20 liters of cooking oil and more fish.


Mbogo Group's story

Fatuma, who is in her late 40s, is widow with a son and a daughter. Her son is in vocational school doing mechanics. For about fourteen years now, Fatuma has been managing her family by running a fish business where she buys fish from the ocean market and fries them at home to sell. She works from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. each working day and is able to make a fair profit.

This will be her eleventh loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loans, all of which were paid back fully, she bought more fish and cooking oil to fry the fish. Fatuma's business profits are used to cover school fees and family food expenses. She will use this loan to buy 20 liters of cooking oil and more fish. She dreams to build a house and expand much on her business.

Fatuma will share this loan with her loan group " MBOGO," which has a total of 5 members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Fatuma, Luthiberta, Mwanaidi, Suzan, Magreth
