Mbaapora Group's story

The MBAAPORA group is in its second loan cycle of the women's committee programme. They are learning to work together and they want to improve their income to be able to help their families. They want to grow not only in the economic but also in the personal sense.

Maida is one of the members of this group. She's a trader and says she has a well-stocked grocery store, from which she supplies her neighbours and people from everywhere.

Maida says that starting her business was quite hard, but now she has very good customers and is growing. She is applying for this loan to buy meat, noodles, rice, sugar and other things to stock her business well.

In this group: Marcia, Maria, Cinthia, Jorgelina, Estefania, Irma, Julia, Clara, Rossana, Gabriela, Maida, Katerin
