Mikoroshini Group's story
Shida, who is in her early 30s, is single with three children, who are still at school. She has been a food vendor for ten years now. She works from 8am to 4pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit. This will be Shida's 20th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to keep increasing and improving her mamalishe business and has paid back all her loans successfully. She is happy with the loan and appreciates Kiva for their support. She used the profit to pay school fees, paid rent for her business shop, bought a TV set, a radio, cupboards for utensils and clothes to repay loan and covered household expenses. She will use this loan to increase on her mamalishe stock and to start selling different types of meals like cassava meal, wheat meal, mashed bananas, sweet potatoes etc. She dreams of building her own house. Shida will share this loan with her loan group Mikoroshini which consists of five members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.
