Ebeneza Group's story

Anness is a mother of six children, four of whom are still at school, two already grown. Anness is in her late thirties and married. She makes her family living by running two businesses; a genge (grocery store) selling fruits and vegetable. She also sells fabrics and sarongs which she sells on credit. She has been involved in these businesses for three years. She is able to make a good monthly profit.

From Tujijenge Tanzania, this is Anness' second loan, which she will use to buy stock for her businesses. She used the previous loan to replenish all of her businesses. Anness repaid, successfully, the entire loan. She earns an extra income which she uses to buy clothes for her children and to cover school bus expenses.

Anness saved some income and invests back into her business part of her business returns. She dreams to open a big shop selling dry food items. She will share this loan with her loan group, “EBENEZA", which totals three members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.
