"Women can make great changes if empowered”.
Sarah is 37 years old. She lives with her 16 year old son and husband Ramadhani.
Before receiving a small loan her and her husband were small scale farmers, and did not earn enough to afford proper meals, school fees for her son, or medication from the hospital.
Sarah received her loan in February 2016 and started a restaurant business. She now earns 15% more than she earned before her loan, and as well as repaying her loan, is able to afford her son's school fees, buy proper medication, and pay her rent.
In the future she hopes to expand her restaurant business further, and maximise my profit to increase her profit even further. She feels empowered thanks to the independence the loan has given her, and is thankful to Hoja for empowering her and other women like her.
