A loan of $2,450 helped a member to buy more food-cooking items to offer more food services..


Kapampa Group's story

Siwa, who is in her mid 30s, is married and has four children who are in school. She is from Tujijenge, Tanzania.

For four years now, Siwa has been running a mamalishe business, offering wholesome street-food services. She is doing great in her project. She works from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily and is able to make a good return per month.

This will be her third loan request, which she will use to buy more food-cooking items to offer more food services. With the previous loans, all of which she paid back successfully, she improved her business by buying more of the missing food-cooking items. Siwa used her profit to cover home expenses and school fees. She dreams that one day she will be able to own a hotel.

Siwa will share this loan with her loan group,"Kapampa," which consists of eight members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Siwa, Joseph, Seregeta, Simon, Halima, Consolata, Redemta, Ally*
