Habiba has been a firewood and juice seller in the Mikunguni neighborhood of Zanzibar for 5 years. She currently earns an average monthly profit of $250. Every day she works at her business for 14 hours. She is requesting her third loan from BRAC Tanzania so that she can buy more firewood and juice materials for her business. She is hoping that through this loan, her profit will increase and she will be able to pay the school fees of her children and save money.
Habiba is 40 years old, is married, and has 6 children.
