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


A loan helped to add stock of braids, weaves, earrings, necklaces, hair food, hair pegs, and hair treatments.


Mwanaisha's story

Mwanaisha is 49 years old. She is a single mother of two children who are done with school. She is a retailer - she owns a cosmetics shop that sells braids, weaves, earrings, and necklaces. She opened her business 10 years ago and operates from 9:00am to 8:00pm. She earns a good profit.

This will be Mwanaisha's second loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. In her previous loan, she added stock of braids, and she earned a profit that she used to add stock of weaves, pay rent for the business, and repay the loan. She repaid the loan successfully.

Mwanaisha is applying for this loan to add stock of braids, weaves, earrings, necklaces, hair food, hair pegs, and hair treatments. Her dream is to own a big cosmetics shop and a modern salon in the future.

Mwanaisha will be responsible for paying back the loan successfully.
