A loan of $350 helped a member to purchase more charcoal and oil to sell.

Mariam's Group's story

Mariam has been selling charcoal and oil in Dodoma, Tanzania for 10 years. She is now seeking her first loan so that she may increase her inventory and purchase the materials in bulk to sell at retail prices in her shop. She currently works 11 hours every day and earns approximately US$ 25 each month. She is hoping to reinvest any increase in profits back into her business so that it can continue to grow.

Mariam is 47 years old, married, and has 3 children. In addition, she cares for four dependents. She will be sharing this loan with her fellow group members, Neema, Sabrina, and Mgeni.
