Chiriku Group's story

Habiba, who is in her early 40s, is married and has five children, four of them attending school. She has been running two businesses, hair plaiting and food vending, for 15 years. She works from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Habiba's 2nd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to buy cooking oil, rice, plaiting thread and charcoal. She has repaid her loan successfully. Habiba wants a loan to put iron sheets on the charcoal store and to buy more sacks of charcoal to sell. Her dream is to one day be able to raise all of her businesses to a good standard.

Habiba will share this loan with her loan group "Chiriku" which consists of 16 members who will hold each other accountable in repaying their loans.

In this group: Habiba, Asha, Anna, Jamila*, Mariam, Gloria, Hadija, Vumilia, Rose, Leticia, Fatuma, Joyce, Clara, Rahima, Winfrida, Sara
