Chamwino Group's story

Zahara, who is in her mid 40s, is a married woman with five children (two sons and three daughters) who are in school. She is doing fine with her family.

Zahara has been handling her life by having two small businesses, charcoal selling and snacks. She has been doing these for ten years. She works from 6 am to 9 pm daily, and is able to earn a good profit each month.

This will be her 8th loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. With the previous loans, all of which were repaid successfully, she managed to purchase more charcoal stock and some kilos of bakery flour. With the profit, she covered household expenses, school fees, and started building her house.

She will use this loan to restock businesses items, and the balance for finishing her house building. She dreams of owning another business selling foods.

She will share this loan with her loan group, 'CHAMWINO' which has 14 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Zahara, Mwahija, Jamila, Robi, Rukia, Asa, Neema, Noela, Hanisha, Amina, Regina, Anna, Antuja, Fatuma
