Jerome's story

Jerome is in his mid-40s and is single with 2 school-going children. He is credited for being a very hardworking and humble retailer as he operates a small store that sells radios to support his family. He has been in this business (retail) for 15 years, working from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily, and he is happy that he's making a good profit.

This will be his 3rd loan request to Kiva from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used his previous loan, which has been repaid successfully, to order more stock of bestselling accessories such as radios, ear phones, USB cables and power cables for his business to grow. With the profit earned, Jerome covered household expenses, paid school fees for his child and cared for his loving family. He's grateful for the loan and thankful to everyone who had supported him.

He applied for the this loan to order more stock of power cables, radios, small speakers, USB ports, HDMI cables, adapters to resell. His main business target is to grow much further, and he will be responsible for paying back the loan in full at maturity.
