A loan of $1,950 helped a member to buy more baking flour, cooking oil and charcoal for making more 'bites' to sell.

Kandoro Group's story

Aisha, who is in her mid 20s, has one daughter who goes to school. She has been running a business of selling 'bites' like chapati, mandazi and samosas for two years now. She works from 6.00 am to 12 noon (for six hours only) daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Aisha's 2nd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to increase her stock of baking flour, cooking oil, charcoal, Irish potatoes, onions and carrots. She has paid back her loan successfully. She used the profit to pay school fees and for household expenses. She will use this loan to buy more baking flour, cooking oil and charcoal to make more 'bites' to sell to more people. She dreams of owning a restaurant.

Aisha will share this loan with her loan group "KANDORO" with nine members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Aisha, Sofia, Karim, Mariamu, Jackline, Fatuma, Jamila, Suzana*, Delton
