A loan helped to buy materials to make more clothes and buy more sarongs to resell.
Kwa Ndevu Group's story
Fatuma, who is in her mid 30s, is married and the mother of two children, both of whom are enrolled in school. For the last 11 years, she has had a tailoring business and a shop where she sells clothes. She works from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily and is able to make a good monthly profit. She lives in Tujijenge Tanzania, and this is her second loan request. She will use the loan to buy materials to make more clothes and buy more sarongs to resell. Fatuma used her previous loans to buy more tailoring materials, fabrics and sarongs and paid back all her loans successfully. She used the profit to help pay school fees and household expenses. She dreams of improving and upgrading her shop. Fatuma will share this loan with her group Kwa Ndevu, which has four members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.
