Break Through Group's story

Six,who is in her late 30s, is married with four children of whom three are in school. The remaining one is a grownup. For three years now, Six has been running a mamalishe business (a restaurant). She is doing fine in this project. She works from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily and is able to make a fair return per month.

This will be her second loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to buy washing basins and saucepans to replace the old ones. With the profit earned, she covered home expenses. She will use this loan to start selling charcoal. She dreams to own a hotel.
