Biashara Group - Kibaha's story

John is a 58-year-old single father of five children. He is a service provider; he owns a shop that sells motorcycle accessories and spare parts. He has been in this business for eight good years. He normally opens his shop at seven in the morning and closes at eight at night. He earns profits.

This will be John's third loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. He purchased more motorcycle accessories with his previous loans. He managed to pay back the loans successfully. He is applying for this loan to add stock of motorcycle accessories and spare parts. His dreams is to start importing accessories from other countries.

John will share a portion of this loan with his loan group members of Biashara Group - Kibaha.
