A loan of $150 helped to buy more charcoal..


Joyce's story

Joyce, a member of the Dodoma Roa C borrower group in Kihesa, Iringa, is a 36-year-old married mother of four children, ages 14, 11, 9, and 6 years. She also cares for one other dependent. Joyce started her own retail business selling charcoal eight years ago. Working eight hours a day, she earns a monthly profit of approximately 90,000 Tanzania Shillings.

This will be Joyce’s first loan from BRAC Tanzania. She has requested 200,000 Tsh in order to buy more charcoal, and with the additional profit accruing from the use of this loan, Joyce hopes to save money and expand her business.
