Pera Group's story

Pili, who is in her early fifties, is married with five children; only one is still at school. She has been supporting her family by running a low-cost food cooking business commonly known as a mamalishe. She works from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily and is able to make a fair profit each month.

Pili is requesting her first loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She is looking for a loan to be apportioned among Pera, four group members. The group members will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

Pili will invest her portion to increase her food stock, to buy drinks and to buy charcoal for cooking. Her ambition is to build rooms for renting.

In this group: Pili, Riziki, Tabu, Yasini
