Twiga Group's story

Zawadi is a mother of three kids who are in school. She is in her late twenties and single. For one year now, Zawadi has been managing her family by running a food stall, called a mamalishe. A business commonly known in Tanzania for being used by lower class income to earn money. Her business is open from 6 am to 11 pm per working day and is able to make a very good monthly profit.

This is Zawadi's first loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. Zawadi will use this loan to buy utensils like cups, sauce pans, plates and food ingredients for business purposes. She dreams in the coming years that she will be able to buy a private car and build a daycare and primary school. She will share this loan with her loan group "TWIGA" which consists of five members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Zawadi, Emelda, Miriam, Rehema, Zarubia
