Busara 1A Group's story

Hawa, who is in her early 20s, is married and has one child, who is in school. For two years now, Hawa had made her living by running a food stall business offering breakfast and lunch. This business requires tolerance due to its working environment and the nature of customers. Hawa is known for being a good service provider and working hard. She always wakes up at 5.00 a.m. to work at her food stall business and ends her day at 6:00 p.m. She is able to make a good profit. Hawa joined with her group, Busara, to access loan supports from Tujijenge which opens a door toward fulfilling her dreams. Her group totals four members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan. She is now requesting a second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania to buy utensils, rice, sugar, liters of cooking oil and other business needs. With her first loan, she bought business stock and working equipment. She used her business profit to buy a motorbike, pay school fees and some household expenses. In the coming years, Hawa dreams to own a hotel.

In this group: Hawa, Furaha, Sauda, Baraka
