A loan helped to expand her business.

Jema's story

Jema is a 34-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her two children and husband in Morogoro district in Tanzania. She runs a money transfer business using the M-pesa and Tigopesa systems. With her previous loan, Jema increased the credit on her line. She used the profit she earned to support her household’s needs. Jema is now requesting another loan in order to expand her business. She plans to use the profit she earns to support her child to go to school.

Jema will repay the ‘social interest’ on her second loan by volunteering 2.5 hours per week as a Camfed Learner Guide. As a Learner Guide, she will facilitate classes from Camfed’s ‘My Better World’ program with students at her local secondary school, help to build children’s self-esteem, and motivate them to remain in school.
