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).

Maimuna's Mbuyuni Group's story

Maimuna is 22 years old and is a single woman. Maimuna owns a small shop, which she started in 2007. Every day, she works from 7am to 8pm at her business and can earn a monthly profit of about $90 from her sales.


In the past, Maimuna has taken out 2 successful loans from BRAC Tanzania to expand her business. She now hopes for a loan to buy more items for her business. She will share this loan with her subgroup members, who have businesses dealing in "bites"-selling, cloth, and food vending.

In this group: Maimuna, Asia, Hidaya, Laila
