Beijing Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy utensils, increase her food inventory, and renovate her food stall.

Beijing Group's story

Veronica is in her early forties and is married with two children. She is a local food vendor famously known as 'mama-lishe", and she has been in this business for over 10 years. She operates a food stall which is opened daily at 6 a.m. and closed at 9 p.m. to raise her profit.

This will be her fifth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. Veronica used her previous loan to increase her food inventory as a mama-lishe, where she added more stock of rice, beans, cans of cooking oil, and ingredients for spicy meals. She is happy that she has successfully managed to clear all of her loan amount in full, and she really appreciates Kiva for the massive support to her business.

With the little profit earned, Veronica paid school fees for her children, covered household expenses, and bought home furniture. She applied for this loan to improve her business. She plans on buying utensils, increasing her food inventory, and renovating the oldest parts of her food stall so as to attract more customers.

She will share this loan with her fellow group member, and they will be responsible for paying back the loan in full at maturity.
