Wastaarabu Group's story

Hidaya is in her 30’s. She is married and the mother of two boys who are in school. For a period of three years now, Hidaya has been managing her family by running two business activities, selling charcoal and managing a restaurant offering different food services like breakfast and lunch. She is doing fine. She starts her activities at 6 AM and completes them at 7 PM daily. She is capable of generating a better profit each month.

This request is Hidaya's 12th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She has repaid all previous loans successfully. She used the previous loans to buy more sacks of charcoal and more food items. With the extra profit she received, she bought a plot of land where she expects to build a house in the future. She also purchased a TV, a refrigerator and a cupboard and paid both school fees for her boys and home expenses. She will use this loan to buy and stock more charcoal, to purchase food items and to renovate her restaurant premise. Her dream is to one day be able to build a nice house.

She will share this loan with her loan group, "WASTAARABU," which has a total of 13 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Hidaya, John, Heri, Mwanaid, Maria, Pili, Fatuma, Salama, Saumu, Pelegrine*, Hatibu, Wampandandila, Salum
