A loan of $1,850 helped a member to buy more fruits and vegetables and sell to more people.

Ufunuo Group's story

Asha, who is in her late 40s, is a widow with four children, two of them grown and the other two still at school.

She has been running a fruits and vegetables business for three years now. She works from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Asha's first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania, which she wants to use for buying more fruits and vegetables to sell to more people. She dreams of building her own house.

Asha will share this loan with her loan group "UFUNUO," which has five members who will hold one another accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Asha, Josephine, Buguza, Consolatha, Anita
