A loan of $750 helped a member to replenish out-of-stock products in his genge duka retail shop.


Makoka Group's story

Mustafa is a member of the Makoka group who dedicates his time to his own business. Jointly with his group, Mustafa is able to request and receive a loan and make improvements to his life.

He is currently aged in his late 30s. Mustafa is married and taking care of his four children who are enrolled to school. For six years now, he has been running a genge duka retail shop, where he sells cooking oil, soaps, matchboxes, airtime, rice, beans and fruits and vegetables. He opens his shop from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. per working day and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This is his second loan request from Kiva partner Tujijenge Tanzania. He will use it to replenish out-of-stock stock products in his genge duka. Mustafa used his previous loan to restock his business for daily demand and has paid back the loan successfully. He used the business profit to cover his household and school expenses. In the coming days, Mustafa dreams of expanding his business more to earn a high return.

He will share this loan with his loan group, Makoka, which has two members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Mustafa, Maimuna
