A loan of $1,125 helped a member to buy more second-hand clothes and fabrics to resell.

Karibu View Group's story

Habiba, who is in her early 30s, is married with four children. Three of them are still going to school and one has finished school. She has been running a business selling second hand clothes and fabrics for one year now. She works from 10am to 8pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be Habiba's 10th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy more and better second-hand clothes. During this time she started selling fabrics door-to-door delivering to her special customers. She is very hardworking and is really happy with the loan. She appreciates Kiva for supporting her group with this precious loan. Now she can take a special loan. She used the profit to pay school fees and managed to buy a plot of land. She will use this loan to buy more second-hand clothes and fabrics to resell. She dreams of building her own house.

Habiba will share this loan with her loan group "karibu view" which has three members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Habiba, Naomi, Maua
