Ddc Group's story

Zakia, who is in her early 30s, is a divorcee with three children. Two of them go to school.

She has been selling new clothes, bed sheets and curtains at a place called Kimara for two years now. She works from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be Zakia’s third loan from Tujijnge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to increase her business and has paid back all her loans successfully. She hopes for a loan to buy and sell more ladies' clothes, bed sheets and curtains. Her dream is to one day open a grocery.

In this group: Zakia, Mwanamuna, Stella, Biseli, Nasoro, Iiluminata, Getruda, Frola, Priska, Vivian, Fatuma, Joyce*, Said, Habibu, Abed, Christopher, Alex
