Pilika Group's story

OCTAVINA who is in her early 40s is married with three children who are still going to school. She has been running two projects, selling cold drinks and stationary selling. She has been in her projects since 2012. She works from 6.30am to 10pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be OCTAVINA's 3rd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy more drinks and increased on the stationary stock and has paid back all her loans successfully. She is doing great! She really appreciates Kiva for supporting their group. She used the profit to pay school fees and covered household expenses. She will use this loan to restock the missing items in the drinks stock and to increase on the stationary stock. She dreams of building her own house.

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

In this group: Octavina, Rukia, Consolata
