A loan of $1,725 helped a member to buy high-demand stock of drinks for her shop.


Ustawi Group's story

Agnessy, who is in her early thirties, is married. She has been managing a drinks business selling soft drinks, beers and spirits for five years. She works from 4 pm to midnight and is able to make a good monthly profit. This is Agnessy's sixth loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania, which she will use to buy high-demand stock of drinks for her pub. She used the previous loans to pay for her new business place, bought chairs, tables and more drinks. She has paid back all previous loans successfully. Agnessy received a profit which she used to cover household expenses and plow back into her business. She dreams of introducing a big bar. She will share this loan with her loan group "Ustawi" which totals two members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Agnessy, Wema
