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 $4,950 helped a member to buy more fresh fish for resale.

Prado Group's story

Steven, who is in his late 20s, is single. He has been running a business selling fresh fish for two years. He works from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM daily and is able to make a very good monthly profit.

This will be his second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the previous loan to buy more fish and cover household expenses. He has paid back his loan successfully. He wants a loan to increase his stock of fish. His dream is to one day be able to open another fish shop.

He will share this loan with his loan group "Prado" which has a total of 18 members. Each will hold the others accountable for paying back their loans.

In this group: Steven, Karume, Alexanda, Monika, Samwel, Eliet, Banadeta, Marry, Grace, Paulo, Kiza, Raphaela, Anifa, Christina, Ascolla, Redegunda, Isael, Joyce
