A loan of $3,800 helped a member to buy manure and to buy different types of vegetables to plant and sell to more customers.


Upendo Oysterbay Group's story

Rehema, who is in her late 30s, is married with two children who are still at school. She has been running a business selling vegetables for three years now. She works from 6 am to 10 am daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be Rehema's sixth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy manure, insecticides and vegetable seeds, and to pay the people who readied the farm for planting vegetable seeds. She has paid back all of her loans successfully. She used the profit to pay schools, build her small house and cover household expenses.

Rehema will use this loan to buy manure and to buy different types of vegetables to plant and sell to more customers. She dreams of building a shop to sell food items.

Rehema will share this loan with her loan group "Upendo Oysterbay" which has eleven members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Rehema, Bupe, Mwadhani, Scola, Egla, Zuhura, Lydia, Sarah, Bakari, Elizabeth, Fatuma
