MUSOMA, Tanzania / Retail

A loan of $1,000 helped a member to buy more stock for her shop to resell, especially seasonal items like rice.


Tuleane Group's story

Bertha, who is in her early 50s, is married with six children: four sons and two daughters who are in school. For eight years now, Bertha has been managing her family life by running a retail shop selling dry food like sugar, maize flour, and baking flour, and other daily demanded home items like airtime. She starts working from 08:00am to 09:00pm every working day and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be her fifth loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. Bertha used her previous loans to buy some daily demanded items like flour, sugar, water, airtime, packed juice, etc. She has managed to pay back all of her previous loans successfully. She used her business profit to start building a house and covered household expenses. Bertha hopes that her business will improve more and will enable her life to become better. She will use this loan to buy more stock for her shop, especially seasonal items like rice, to resell. She dreams of finishing building and providing a better education for her kids.

Bertha will share this loan with her loan group Tuleane, which consists of two members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Bertha, Rehema
