Sunguchini Group's story

Asha is a widow aged mid-40s. She is raising a family of three children, one son and two daughters, who are in school. For six years now, she has been providing for her family by engaging in two businesses: a beauty salon and a catering business where she receives food cooking orders for different functions. Asha starts working at 9 am and is busy till 10 pm every work day and is able to make a very good monthly profit.

This is her eleventh loan from Kiva partner Tujijenge Tanzania. Asha used her previous loans to open another beauty salon branch in Zanzibar and bought catered food serving dishes and food stocks. She is really doing great and her businesses really grow day after day. She has managed to pay back all her previous loans successfully.

Asha used her profit to cover school fees and household expenses and reinvested in her businesses. She will use this loan to buy salon equipment. She dreams of building a nice family house.

She will share this loan with her loan group "Sunguchini" which totals two members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Asha, Halima
