A loan of $3,000 helped a member buy food and drinks for her food stall.

Furaha Tegeta Group's story

Saumu, who is in her late 40s, is married and has four children, two sons and two daughters. Three of them are still going to school and the eldest has finished school. She has been a food vendor for seven years now. She works from 6am to 4pm daily and is able to make a good monthly income.

This will be Saumu's seventh loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy cooking supplies. She also renovated her restaurant by putting in new iron sheets and tiles in order to make the place attractive to customers. She is really happy and appreciates the loans. She used the profit to pay school fees, bought a farm and covered household expenses. She will use this loan to buy food and cold drinks to meet her customers' demand. She dreams of giving her children a good education and to be successful in life.

Saumu will share this loan with her loan group Furaha Tegeta, which has three members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Saumu, Thabith, Hassan
