A loan of $4,425 helped a member to buy more second-hand clothes to sell.

Kibondo Group's story

Vedasto, who is in his mid 30s, is married with two children, one of whom goes to school. He has been selling second-hand clothes since 1997. He works from 9a.m to 10p.m. daily and is able to make a small monthly profit.

This will be Vedasto's first loan from Kiva partner, Tujijenge Tanzania, which he wants to use for buying more second-hand clothes to sell. His dream is to be able to finish his house one day. He will share this loan with his loan group "Kibondo," which has a total of 17 members who will hold each other accountable in paying back their loans.

In this group: Vedasto, Mwanahamis, Witness, Debora, Grace, Zena, Grace, Jamila, Veronica, Chiku, Rose, Deogratius, Zainab, Janeth, Emanuel, Tumaini, Julias
