A loan of $1,775 helped a member to buy local charcoal stoves, made of clay, to resell.

Alinyikira Group's story

At 28 years of age, Amina is married and has two kids. She also looks after her four sisters, who are dependent on her for their livelihood because they are orphans. She sells charcoal stoves made of clay to meet her needs and those of her extended family. Her main challenge is customers who take stoves on credit and fail to pay back.

She dreams of buying a plot of land in the future, using savings from her business. She was excited about joining the borrowing group because this will help her increase her working capital, which in turn will reduce the strain on the limited resources. She is very hard-working and persevering, despite the challenges of supporting her extended family. Amina is the lady in white and black at the front row on the right.
