A loan of $1,025 helped a member to buy food cooking stocks for her local restaurant.


Sisi Kwa Sisi Group's story

Nuru is a businesswoman who makes her living by running a local restaurant. She has been in this business for three years now. Her business is open from 6 am to 9 pm daily and she is able to make a fair monthly return. Nuru is in her early thirties and is single.

This is Nuru’s sixth loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans, all of which were paid back successfully, to restock her food cooking ingredients like rice, cooking oil, maize and baking flour. Nuru earned extra income which she used to buy a refrigerator and to pay for her personal expenses. She will use this new loan to buy more food cooking stocks. Nuru dreams that one day she will be able to improve her business and buy a plot of land.

Nuru will share this loan with her loan group ”Sisi Kwa Sisi” which totals three members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Nuru, Sesilia, Brown
