Kampala Group's story

Adventina, who is in her early 50s, is a widow with three children, one grown and two still in school. She earns a living by selling porridge mix, which she makes from maize, millet, ground nuts and flour. People buy her mix and add water to make a kind of porridge that is normally served to children and people who are sick. She has been in this business for five years and works from 6.00 am to 4.00 pm daily. She earns a small monthly profit and is requesting her first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She will use the loan to buy ingredients to make more mix to sell. She dreams of being an international business woman. Adventina will share this loan with her group, Kampala, which has 11 members who will hold each other accountable for making payments.
