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

Saida's Group's story

Saida has been selling charcoal in the Jang'ombe neighborhood of Zanzibar for one year. She works from 8:00am to 6:00pm every day and earns a profit of approximately $80 each month. She has taken out one previous loan from BRAC Tanzania which she repaid successfully and on time. She is requesting a second loan so that she can further increase her inventory of charcoal.

Saida is 39 years old, married, and has two children, aged 9 and 14. She also cares for two additional dependants. Saida will be sharing this loan with her fellow group member, Shemsa, who also owns a small business in Zanzibar.
