A loan helped a member to buy building and installation materials.


Jade 09 Group's story

Telma is 42 years old and single. She has two children and making a living installing and inspecting home gas appliances. She started doing this work five years ago with the help of her mother.

A typical day for Telma involves waking up very early to carry out household tasks and look after the children before going to work with the gas installations.

Telma met the members of her group as they are friends and colleagues.

Telma invested her last loan in buying building and installation materials. This is her second loan and she will use it buy materials for gas installations.

Telma's goal and aspiration for this loan is to expand her business. Her goals and aspirations for her family are to be a good mother and offer her family financial stability.
