Mambo (Greetings!) from Tanzania! This is thirty-four-year-old Moureen Mwakarobo from Dar es Salaam. She is married and has two children. Moureen has been running a chips business since 2007. Chips are fried small pieces of potatoes.

She works hard at her business because she has no one to assist her. Moureen currently earns about $100 a month from her business. She is requesting a loan of 700,000 TSH in order to purchase potatoes and cooking oil. In the future, she plans to improve her business. Moureen thanks you for your support!


Congratulations to Moureen!
