A loan of $2,800 helped a member to buy more rice to meet customer demand.


Manzese Group's story

Halima, who is in her mid 30s is married with two children who are still at school. She has been selling rice for two years now. She works from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be Halima's second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to buy more rice and is so grateful for the loan. She has managed to pay back her loan successfully. She used the profit for school fees and covered household expenses. She will use this loan to buy more rice to meet her customers' demand. She dreams of owning a wholesale shop for rice and to be a food vendor.

Halima will share this loan with her loan group "MANZESE" which has eight members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Halima, Azizi, Ramadhani, Juma, Yuster, Abdalah, Anthony, Victoria
