A loan of $4,750 helped a member to purchase more chickens and chicken feed.

Stella Valimba's Tuinuane Group's story

Stella V., age 60, is married with 5 children. She has a chicken business which she started more than ten years ago. She works all day long from her house and is able to make a monthly profit of about $86.

Stella has taken out one previous loan from Tujijenge Tanzania to increase her business by buying more chickens and chicken feed. She hopes for a new loan to use for the same purpose as the last one. Stella will share this loan with her group, Tuinuane, which totals 21 members. These members hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.
