A loan of $600 helped a member to buy more salon items and other items for her shop.


Wapendanao Group's story

Nahida has owned a small shop and beauty salon in the Mikunguni neighborhood of Zanzibar for 15 years. She currently earns an average monthly profit approximately $175. Every day, she works at her business for eight hours.

She is requesting her second loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Tanzania so that she can buy more salon items and other items for her shop. She is hoping that through this loan, her profit will increase and she will be able to grow her business and save money for a future use.

Nahida is 41 years old, married, and has three children: ages 15, 13 and 10. She will be sharing this loan with her fellow group member, Yusta, who has her own small business in Zanzibar.
