Mafinga Group's story

Anneth, who is in her late 30s, is married with three children who are still at school. She has been running a business of decorating and baking cakes. She has been in this business for seven years now and is able to make a good monthly profit. When Anneth has a cake to bake and decorate, she starts work at 6 am and finishes at 6 pm.

Anneth is requesting a second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan, which was repaid successfully, to buy cake stands, which she normally uses when baking and presenting cakes to customers. Anneth received extra income which she used to cover part of the school fees and home food expenses. She dreams that one day she will be able to own her own rental hall. Anneth will use this loan to buy chairs for the bride and bridegroom and flour and other cake-making ingredients.

Anneth will share this loan with her loan group "Mafinga" which totals three members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Anneth, Grace, Deogratius
