Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

A loan of $3,400 helped a member to buy a bale of second hand clothes.

Huruma Group's story

Johari, who is in her mid-thirties, is married with three children who are still at school. She has been selling second hand clothes from door to door for five years now. She works from 10:00am to 6:00pm daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be Johari's 3rd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to increase on the clothes stock and has paid back her loans successfully. She hopes for a loan to buy a bale of second hand clothes, so that she will have a good stock of clothes. Her dream is to one day open a big store where she can sell her clothes.

Johari will share this loan with her loan group "Huruma", which has a total of fifteen members who will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.

In this group: Johari, Brigither, Suzana, Kisa, Alex, Flora, Boniface, Letisia, Bahati, Salimu, Kuruthumu, Mary, Victoria, Agness*, Sara
