The two women who want to establish an M-Pesa Shop, which is for money transfers and buying credit for mobile phones, know that their next step is to go to Arusha, to make sure what the legal circumstances are and which law questions they have to solve. They already asked someone for a loan and now they just have to wait for it.
The Dairy-Group plan to meet soon with their group so that they can discuss further steps to continue their ideas. They just use the meeting to exchange knowledge, but they do not intend to work together.
“Shanga-Group” where the women intend to sell nice jewelry decided to meet this week, so that they can finalize all the cost which they will have, especially for the material to start making the jewelry. They also want to work in the whole group together, so they can share not just the work also the money which they need for buying materials.
One women told us that she already bought three goats. Now she is waiting for the loan to buy another two goats. She already asked someone so she just need to wait to get it. Furthermore the women also met in their group and did some kind of survey to get to know how much one goat will cost and for how they can sell it.
Three of the tailors decided to work together and already rent a room and the have the sewing machines. Now they are waiting for some loan so they are able to buy the fabric. Probably in one month they will receive it. But nevertheless they started working.
Last week the women who want to sell soap met in their group. They started to finalize their establishment cost. This week they will have another meeting because one member went to Arusha to figure out the exact costs for the material which they need to produce the soap.
So as one can see there is a lot of progress to see and it makes us really happy that they take their business ideas further.
