Mclaren Group's story

Hadija, who is in her mid 40s, is single with two children, a boy and a girl who are enrolled in school. For twenty years now, Hadija has been running two businesses, a mamalishe (restaurant), offering different food services, and also a poultry business using local chickens which she grows herself. Hadija sells these chickens in two forms: chicks and big chickens. She works from 5:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. daily and is able to earn a good profit per working day.

From Tujijenge Tanzania, this is Hadija's first loan request. She will use the loan to buy chicken food and mamalishe food cooking items (charcoal, cooking oil, maize flour, baking flour, etc.). She dreams that one day, she will be able to build a café.

Hadija will share this loan with her loan group, “Mclaren", which consist of ten members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Hadija, Yasinta, Magdalena, Calister, Beatrice, Marick, Cecilia, Rehema, Erica, John
