A loan of $200 helped a member to buy more fish for resale.

Maendeleo 'a' Group's story

Jane is 36 years old, married, and has six children: ages 15, 12, 9, 6, and 2. Jane has been a fish seller in the Nzovwe neighborhood of Mbeya for many years. She currently earns very little monthly profit. Every day she works at her business for twelve hours.

She is requesting her first loan from BRAC Tanzania to buy more fish for resale in order to expand her business. She is hoping that through this loan her profit will increase and she will be able to grow her business.

Jane will be sharing this loan with her fellow group member Nandiwe. Nandiwe has her own small business selling milk in Mbeya.

In this group: Jane, Ndinawe
