Mashineya Maji No 5 Group's story

Salome A. is in her mid-40s and is married with five children. Nine months ago she opened her own grocery store where she sells beer, soda and several other goods. The shop is open daily between 8am and 11pm and earns Salome a good monthly profit.

This will be Salome's first loan with Kiva partner, Tujijenge Tanzania. Salome aims to increase the variety of goods in her store, as well as stocking up on existing goods. Salome's dream is to earn enough profit to make improvements to her store one day.

Salome will share this loan with her loan group Mashineya Maji No 5, which totals 26 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for repaying the loan.
