A loan of $2,300 helped a member to buy drinks and improve her restaurant by restocking food supplies.


Tanzania Group's story

Fatuma, who is in her early 40s, is married with four children; one is in school. For ten years now, Fatuma has been running a restaurant selling food and soft drinks like water and soda. She starts working from 6 am to 4 pm per work day and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be her third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. Fatuma has used her previous loans to buy 'mama lishe' (local cafe) food supplies, a deep freezer and more soft drinks. She has managed to pay back all her loans successfully, with the business profit used to cover school fees and household expenses. Fatuma will use this loan to buy drinks and improve her restaurant by restocking food supplies. She dreams of owning a hotel and building a nice family house.

Fatuma will share this loan with her loan group "Tanzania" which totals three members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Fatuma, Tatu., Tatu
