Biryema's Group


A loan of $475 helped a member to buy more charcoal and firewood for her business.


Biryema's Group's story

Biryema has been selling charcoal and firewood in Zanzibar for 5 years. Both are common household items among Tanzanians as they are the fuel with which food is prepared. Few Tanzanians own an oven or stove. Biryema will be using her first loan from BRAC Tanzania to expand her inventory so that she can increase her profit.

Biryema is 28 years old, married, and has two children, aged 3 and 5. She is currently able to earn a profit of approximately US$ 100 each month. She will be sharing this loan with her fellow group member, Kinunu.
