A loan of $1,250 helped a member to repair her table where she displays her fried fish and to restock her supply of fish for her business.


Njia Ya Ng'ombe Group's story

Hamida is a mother of two school-going sons and is in her late twenties. She is a divorcée, and for three years she has been taking care of her family by managing a fish business. She travels a distance from home to the fish market (from 5:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.) to buy stock, then returns home to fry the fish and resell it. She has a big table where she arranges her fish in bundles depend on their size (big and small corresponding with prices). Hamida sells her fish up to midnight daily and is able to make a good profit each month.

This is her first loan request through Tujijenge Tanzania. Hamida is applying for a loan to be apportioned among Njia Ya Ng'ombe, a group of six members. The group members will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan. Hamida will use this loan to repair her table where she displays her fried fish and to restock her supply of fish for her business. Her ambitions are to greatly improve her fish business and to build a nice house.

In this group: Hamida, Amina, Mwajuma, Ramadhani, Sikudhani, Selestina
