A loan of $500 helped a member to buy more inventory for her shop.


Nora's Group's story

Nora has been selling chips and other foods at her shop in Dodoma, Tanzania, for five years. Chips, known as 'French fries' in other parts of the world, are as common as rice and ugali in Tanzania, and all three starchy foods serve as filler to accompany lighter foods that would otherwise not be enough to make up an entire meal.

Nora is 37 years old, married, and has three children, aged 8, 10 and 14. She works for 12 hours every day and earns a profit of approximately $70 each month. She will be sharing this loan with her fellow group members, Hidaya, Stamili and Halima.
