A loan of $975 helped to buy repair parts for her motorbike.


Mwanajuma's story

Mwanajuma runs a motorcycle transportation business. She has run her business for 10 years and has now hired someone to help her operate it. She lives with her family in a rural area. She started by selling cereals, but after giving serious thought to ensuring the security of her family, she saved her money and purchased her motorcycle. This allowed her to supplement her monthly income to improve her family's standard of living. She reports that her job is particularly challenging in the winter, since her business attracts fewer passengers due to the cold temperatures. Her dream is to buy more motorcycles for her growing business. She is requesting a second loan in order to buy repair parts for her motorcycle, since it is presently her only work vehicle and is therefore indispensable to her. She is so grateful for the support that Yehu and Kiva are offering to her.
