A loan of $4,100 helped a member to open another cafe business in a new location.

Kaja A Group's story

Martina is a single woman in her late twenties. For two years now she has operated a cafe business, selling cold and hot beverages such as soda, juice and water. She also provides food services through this business. Martina opens her business from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. daily and is able to make a good profit.

This is Martina's 3rd loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania, which she will use to open another cafe business in a new location. With her previous loans, all of which she managed to pay back in full, Martina used the funds to buy more food-cooking supplies: maize flour, baking flour, cooking oil, sugar, and fruits for making juice. She also paid wages for her employees and bought some new equipment for her business, such as chairs and tables. Martina used the profits from her business to buy a plot of land and to cover her own food and other household expenses. Her dream is to build a house and be a successful woman.

Martina will share this loan with her loan group, Kaja A, which consists of six members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Martina, John, John, Zawadi, Msifuni, Julius
