A loan of $1,800 helped a member to buy rice, cooking oil, maize flour, baking flour, beans, fruits and vegetables to meet his customers' demand.


Juu Kwa Juu Group's story

Hamisi, who is in his early 30s, is married with three children who are still going to school. He has been running a genge-duka (small grocery stall) business for five years now. He works from 7am to 9pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Hamisi's second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loan to restock the missing items in his genge-duka and has paid back his loan successfully. He used the profit to pay school fees and covered household expenses. He will use this loan to buy rice, cooking oil, maize flour, baking flour, beans, fruits and vegetables to meet his customers' demand. He dreams of increasing his business into a very big shop.

Hamisi will share this loan with his loan group "Juu Kwa Juu" which has five members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Hamisi, Hamisi, Elson, Jires, Boniventure
