A loan of $4,200 helped a member to buy more sacks of charcoal and to buy more stock of food to sell to more people.

Tuinuane Group's story

Fatuma, who is in her early 40s, is married. She has four children who go to school. She has been running two businesses, selling charcoal and operating as a food vendor since 2005. She works from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm daily and she is able to make a fair monthly profit.

In this group: Fatuma, Mariam, Kidawa, Emmy, Tabu, Matha*, Zaituni, Sahiya, Tatu, Redmpta, Hadija, Dida, Aisha, Saidati*, Sham*, Saadia
