A loan of $1,375 helped a member to restock a grocery store.


Kariakoo Group's story

Mwanaisha H., 40, is divorced and has a 15-year-old son. She also supports her mother and her father. She runs a food market, which she started 6 years ago. She works daily from 6am until 1pm. She realizes a monthly profit of around $292.

This will be Mwanaisha’s second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to restock her store, and she repaid the loans successfully. She now hopes for the second loan to restock her grocery again.

Mwanaisha will share this loan with her group, Kariakoo, which has five members who run shops, work as tailors, and sell clothes. The members of the subgroup hold each other accountable for repaying their loans. In the picture, Mwanaisha is shown at the rear, 2nd from the right.

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