Puma Group's story
Naomi is in her early forties and has three children who are in school. She is married. For three years, she has been a mama lishe (open air food vendor) managing a restaurant serving different foods. She also sells drinks like beer, water, soda, and juice in the same place. She has been in this business for three years now and is able to make a very good profit. Naomi works from 6am to midnight. This is her second loan request through Tujijenge Tanzania. With her previous loan, which she repaid successfully, Naomi bought new business chairs to replace defective ones. She wants to make her restaurant more attractive. With good management of her previous loan, she earned extra income that she used to cover her children's school fees and some household expenses. She is back again to request a loan to buy a freezer for her business. She wants to sell cold drinks. She will share this loan with her loan group "Puma," which totals three members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.
