A loan of $525 helped a member to buy more items for her business.


Saumu's Nyota Njema Group's story

Saumu is 25 years old and is married. Saumu conducts a small donut business that she started in 2006. Every day, she works from 7am to 8pm making and selling donuts at her business and can earn a monthly profit of about $40 from her sales.


Saumu now hopes for a loan to buy more food items to increase her production of donuts. She will share this loan with her subgroup members Mariam and Mwanaisha, who have small businesses.

This is a group loan. The loan funds will be distributed among the group members, each of whom will invest in her own business. The members mutually guarantee one another's loans. If one member does not repay, the other members are responsible.

In this group: Saumu, Mariam, Mwanaisha
