A loan of $875 helped a member to buy fabrics to increase her sales.

Twaweza Mwanza Group's story

Ngwashi is in her mid-40's, married and the mother of six children, all of whom attend school. For the last 12 years, she has made her living by selling fabrics. She opens her business from 10:00 am to 05:00 pm daily and is able to make a small profit each month.

This will be her third loan request, which she will use to buy fabrics to increase her sales. With the previous loans, each of which was paid back successfully, she bought clothing, all of which she sold. Ngwashi managed her business well and earned a good profit. She used the profit to build a small house, pay some family expenses and save for the future. She dreams that one day she will be able to build a big house.

She will share this loan with her group, Twaweza, which has two members who will hold each other accountable for repaying the loan.

In this group: Ngwashi, Evarist
