Chadulu L Group's story

Esta has owned a small charcoal store and has been a maize seller in the Ipagala neighborhood of Dodoma for 14 years. She currently earns an average monthly profit of US$ 175. Every day she works at her business. She is requesting her first loan from BRAC Tanzania so that she can buy more charcoal and maize for her business.
