Makongo Kk Group's story

Tosigwegwe, who is in her early 40s, is a widow with four children who are still in school. She has been running different types of businesses. She sells clothing and bites made from baking flour; she also has a motorcycle transport business. Tosigwegwe has been operating these businesses for three years. She works from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Tosigwegwe's 10th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to make bites to meet her customers' demand and to buy clothes and a motorcycle which supports her financially. Being a widow, Tosigwegwe is really happy with the loans which have made her family earn a good living. She has managed to repay all her loans successfully. Tosigwegwe used the profit to pay school fees and to cover household expenses. She will use this loan to make bites and to buy clothes and spare parts for the motorcycle. She dreams of building her own house.

Tosigwegwe will share this loan with her loan group "MAKONGO KK" which consists of seven members who will hold each other accountable for repaying the loan.

In this group: Tosigwegwe, Abiudi, Felista, Fransisca, Paulo, Jummanne, Hadija
