A loan of $1,325 helped a member to buy the products in high demand for her business.

Songa Mbele Group's story

Jesca is a mother of two daughters who are enrolled to school. She is a widow and for twelve months now she has been taking care of her family by managing a small business (kiosk), selling soft drinks and bites. Jesca runs her business at school where she sells to students. She opens her kiosk from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. per working day and is able to make a fair profit. Despite the small profit she gains, Jesca is always working hard to maximize her profits, and is able to pay her daughter’s school fees and home food expenses.

From Tujijenge Tanzania, this is Jesca's third loan request which she will use to buy the products in high demand for her business. She used the previous loans to buy a fridge to keep soft drinks cold, and she purchased juices and sodas. She successfully paid back all of her previous loans. Jesca received a profit which she used to cover home food expenses and saved a portion of for her future. She dreams of becoming a successful woman.

Jesca will share this loan with her loan group ”Songa Mbele” which totals three members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Jesca, Abdalah, Christine
