Tanzanite Group's story

Felista, who is aged in her early thirties, is married and has got four children of whom three are in school. She has had a mamalishe business for five years now. Felista opens her mamalishe business from 06:30am to 10:00pm per working day and is able to make a good profit per month.

This is Felista's fifth loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans all of which paid back successfully to buy food items to maintain her food stocks. Felista earned a profit which she used to pay part of school fees, household expenses and bought home fridge, TV and build a house. She is really happier with Kiva lenders support. She believe that one day she will be able to open a big shop and attain a successfully life. She will use this loan to replenish her food store with items like some kilos of rice, sugar, maize flour and some litters of cooking oil.

Felista will share this loan with his loan group "Tanzanite" which totals six months. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.
