Mambo from Dar es Salaam, Tanzania! This is 29-year-old Tumaini K., who is married and has one child, aged 7. She also has two other dependents who live with her because they are orphans. In 2002, Tumaini established her pharmacy business. Working seven days a week, 9 to 12 hours a day, assisted by her one employee, she earns about $170 every month from this business.

Tumaini has already received and repaid four loans from SELFINA, and now requires a new loan in order to add to her inventory of medicines. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately $87. In the future, Tumaini plans to increase the quantity and range of her stock. She thanks you for your support.
