A loan of $950 helped a member to buy pesticides for his farm fruits and vegetables and to pay laborers.


Mshikamano Group's story

Chacha, who is in his late twenties, is married with five children, three of whom are in school, while two are still young.

For ten years now, Chacha has been involved with farming activities where he grows fruits and tomatoes; thereafter he sells them at wholesale to different business people. He is also involved with livestock (local cows). He works from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and is able to earn a good monthly profit.

This will be his eleventh loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. He will use the loan to buy pesticides for his farm fruits and vegetables and to pay farm laborers. With the previous loans, all of which he has paid in full, Chacha managed to buy ten cows, so as to extend his business portfolio, and bought more fruits from other farmers for selling.

Chacha used his business profit to start building a house, and bought a home TV, sofa set, dining table and radio, and covered some school fees expenses. Family expenses and part of the school fees are covered by his wife, who is running other business projects in accordance with himself.

Chacha is full of productive dreams, especially in the agriculture sector. He dreams to open a wholesale shop.

He will share this loan with his loan group, “Mshikamano", which totals two members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Chacha, Manumbu
