A loan of $250 helped to buy staple goods for production such as maize, wood, wheat flour, gas, matches, plastic bags and griddle pans to use in food production.


Mwanajuma's story

Mwanajuma is married and a mother of eight children. Mwanajuma considers herself to be a hard-worker who is responsible and really wants to better herself. Unfortunately, due to a lack of financial resources, she couldn't go to college and went straight to work at an early age. Now she fights every day to give her children a better future.

Thanks to her entrepreneurial spirit she set up a business making food for sale which she has been running from home for 3 years. The aim of this loan is to invest in working capital and stock her business, buying staple goods for production such as maize, wood, wheat flour, gas, matches, plastic bags and griddle pans.

Mwanajuma is grateful for the help that kiva borrowers offer to people with scarce resources so that they can have a way of working with dignity.
