A loan of $1,925 helped a member to buy more stock of charcoal to resell at her business.


Poverty Eradication Group's story

Shawari is a hard-working mother of four, and she also takes care of her late brother's children. She devotes 13 hours a day to her charcoal business in the city's outskirts. She hopes that the increased profit from the loan will help her to expand the business. And, with the increased income, she hopes to adequately meet her family's needs. She is a hard-working woman. She attributes her success to the group cohesion, and the financing from Ugafode and Kiva lenders.

In this group: Ruth, Benah, Shawari, Juliet, Sophia, Florence, Steven
