Wapendanao Group's story

Asha, 38, is a very hard-working shoe vendor from Dar-Es-salaam, Tanzania. She is married and has two school-going daughters.

She began by selling second-hand clothes and bracelets before growing her business into a boutique. She has been operating a store that has sold women's sandals, high heels, court shoes, boots and trainers for more than six years. Asha works daily from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., and she is making great profit.

This is her second loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan as capital for restocking her shoe-selling enterprise, adding sets of hand-made sandals and khanga. She's now happy that her business is going ion so well and with the profit earned, She has successfully managed to pay all of her loan amount in full, pay school fees and provide food for her family.

Asha applied for this loan to increase the stock of second-hand shoes, handbags and clothes for selling. She will share the loan with her 10 group members and they will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan in full at maturity.
