A loan of $2,425 helped a member to increase his stock of fish in his business.

Mkombozi Group's story

Makonge, who is his early 40s, is married with five children, who are in school.

For eight years now, he has been running his life by managing a fish business. Makonge works from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. per working day and is able to make a fair return per month.

From Tujijenge Tanzania, this is his third loan request, which he will use to increase his stock of fish in his business. With the previous loans, all of which he managed to pay back in full, he used to keep his business stock growing and maintain customers' demand, especially at the time of shortage.

With the profit, Makonge used it to cover his family's food, medical, and shelter expenses. He has paid school fees for his children. He dreams of buying a plot of land and building a nice family house.

Makonge will share this loan with his loan group" MKOMBOZI," which totals three members, who will hold one another accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Makonge, Kangi, Labani
