A loan of $1,850 helped a member to buy different types of drinks to resell and to meet customers' demands.


Mabomba Mengi Group's story

Safina, who is in her mid 30's, is single with two children who are still going to school. She has been running a grocery store business for five years now. She works from 8:00 a.m. to midnight daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Safina's 6th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy drinks, a motorcycle, chairs and tables, and to pay a helper. She has repaid all her loans successfully. She used her profit to pay school fees, put electricity in her house and cover household expenses. She will use this loan to buy different types of drinks to resell and to meet customers' demands. She dreams of improving her business by putting in better chairs and tables and a good stock of drinks.

Safina will share this loan with her loan group "Mabomba Mengi," which has five members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Safina, Christina, Hafsa, Masana, Victoria
