A loan of $3,800 helped a member to increase capital for both businesses.

Maimuna's Makuti A Group's story

Maimuna H., 51 years old, is a widow with four children (ages 28, 26, 24 and 20). She has operated two businesses - a retail shop and used clothing sales - for two years now. Working from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, she is able to make a monthly profit of about $95.
