Hadijah's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to boost her restaurant business.

Hadijah's story

Hadija is divorcee aged 47 years and taking care of her two children. She runs a restaurant in mutukula boarder. She also carries out agriculture where she grows beans, maize and matoke and started her business in 2011.

She works seven days in a week and 10 hours per day and started the business to develop herself, get school fees for her children and get food for the family.

She acquired the loan to boost her restaurant business. She will buy foodstuffs for cooking to boost sales and profit. Her hope for the future is to open more businesses in other trading centers and the challenge she faces is that many clients take long to settle their debts.

She describes herself as a hardworking woman who encourages lenders to reduce the interest rates, so that low income earners can also access loans.
