Mbinga Group's story

Salome, who is in her mid-30s, is single, with two children who are still in school. She has been a food vendor for four years now. She works from 5am to 3pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Salome's third loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to start selling food. She wakes up very early and makes soup (boiled chicken heads, legs, chicken intestines, and meat soup) and serves it with chapati. She also serves chapati with beans, then she also serves cooked food at around midday and then she goes home at 3pm.

Salome is happy with the loan because, being a single parent, she can manage to take care of her children. They go to fair schools. She has also managed to successfully pay back her prior loans. She used the profit to pay school fees and cover household expenses. She will use this loan to buy backing flour, cooking oil, sugar, beans, wheat flour, and charcoal to cook the food.

Salome will share this loan with her loan group, Mbinga Group, which has nine members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Salome, Fadhil, Aisha, Ismail, Agatha, Eva, Godfrey, Mwangaza, Salma
