A loan of $750 helped a member to buy more materials (drinks) to expand her business.


Makole F Group's story

Roy has owned a small drinks shop in the Ipagala neighborhood of Dodoma for 3 years. She currently earns an average monthly profit of $190. Every day she works at her business. She is requesting her first loan from BRAC Tanzania so that she can buy more drink materials for her business. She is hoping that through this loan, her profit will increase and she will be able to grow her business and to pay school fees for their children.

Roy is 38 years old, married, and has four children: ages between 9 and 17. She will be sharing this loan with her fellow group members, Rosaria, Fatuma, Wini and Kibibi. Each woman also has her own small business in Dodoma.

In this group: Roy, Rosaria, Fatuma, Wini, Kibibi
