A loan of $4,075 helped a member to make more bricks to sell.

Kilongawima Group's story

Lilian is in her early 30s. She is married with three children who go to school. For eight years, she's been operating two separate businesses, selling clothes and selling bricks, to support her family. Working from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, she's able to make a good monthly profit.

This loan request is Lillian's eighth loan from Kiva's field partner Tujijenge Tanzania. Lillian's previous loans, all of which she paid back successfully, allowed her to increase her stock of clothes, to produce bricks to sell, to pay for household expenses, and to pay her children's school fees. She would like to use this loan to produce additional bricks to sell. Her dream: to one day be able to expand her business.

Lillian will share this loan with her loan group, Kilongawima, which totals 10 members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Lilian, Felista, Silvia, Christina, Devotha, Stella, Jane, Deborah, Lucy, Sarafina
