Rehema S. is a married woman and a small-business owner. She runs a business as a food vender at Tua Moyo, Kigambon, Dar es Salaam.
Rehema prepares and sells both cooked and fried food. She sells cooked rice, fried fish, roast meat and bites (bread-like rolls) to her customers and has been in the business for six years.
From her business income, Rehema has managed to build a house, capitalize the business, and also meets her family’s daily needs. She plans to diversify the business by opening a foodstuffs shop but funds are a most limiting factor.
Rehema needs a loan of TZS 1,200,000 to buy more business goods.
