Madona Group's story

Halima is in her late 30s and is a widow with three children. She has been a food vendor for three years now. She works from 8am to 10pm and is able to make a good monthly profit. This will be Halima’s second loan from Kiva partner, Tujijenge Tanzania. She used her previous loan to increase her food stock and has paid back the loan successfully. She is now requesting a loan to purchase more stocks of food. Halima’s dream is to build her own house one day. Halima will share this loan with her loan group, "Madona", which totals 18 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable in paying back the loan.
