Mikoroshini Group's story

Shida, who is in her early thirties, is married and has three children. Two of them are in school. For 10 years now, Shida has been running a food stall business: Mamalishe. She works from 6am to 5pm daily and is able to make a good profit each month.

This is Shida's 10th loan request from Kiva's partner Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to pay for raw ingredients like cooking oil, beans, bananas, cooking water, rice, maize, baking flour and other related items. Shida has managed all of her previous loans well which made her business grow. With her profit, she built a house, and covered part of home and school expenses. She will use this loan to pay for ingredients like maize, baking flour, rice, beans, bananas and meat. She dreams to build a house that has a room for her business.

Shida will share this loan with her loan group Mikoroshini which has nine members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Shida, Anneth, Neema, Rose, John, Asma, Mwanaisha, G, Husna
