A loan of $1,475 helped a member to buy more foods for her food business.


Mwanaisha's Group's story

Mwanaisha Hukongo, age 40, is a divorcee with one son age fifteen. She also takes care of her mother and her father. She has a food business which she started 6 years ago, and she works daily from 6am until 1pm. She is able to earn a monthly profit of around US$ 292.



This will be Mwanaisha’s second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to increase her stock and she repaid the loan successfully. She now hopes for the second loan to buy more foods for her food business.



Mwanaisha will share this loan with her subgroup Kariakoo, which has five members who have shops or are tailors or sell clothes. The members of the subgroup hold each other accountable in paying back their loans. In the picture, Mwanaisha is 2nd from left, behind.

In this group: Mwanaisha, Ahlan, Suleman, Amina, Zuhura
