A loan of $4,000 helped a member to buy food stocks to resell.

Masika Group's story

Salumu, who is in his mid-twenties, is single and has a baby girl. For three years now, he has been running a food shop selling rice, maize, baking flour, beans and other items. His shop is open from 12:00 pm to 9:00 pm daily and he is able to make a fair monthly profit.
This is his sixth loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania and he will use the loan to buy food stocks to resell. He used the previous loans (all of which were paid back successfully) to restock on food items like sacks of rice, beans, sugar, maize and baking flour. He managed to earn extra income which he used to cover home food expenses and house building expenses. He dreams of finishing building his house and painting it with nice colors.
Salumu will share this loan with his loan group, "MASIKA" which consist of six members. The members of this group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Salumu, Erick, Juma, Jumbe, Magreth, Yusufu
