A loan of $875 helped a member to buy materials, threads and glue for making more shoes.


Maclaren Group's story

YASINTA who is in her early 40s is married with three children who are still at school. She has been making and selling shoes since 1999. She works from 7.30am to 830pm daily and is able to make a good monthly profit.

This will be YASINTA's 8th loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans to buy more materials and made many shoes which she managed to sell. She used the profit to pay school fees and covered house hold expenses. She is doing great with the loan and appreciates Kiva for supporting them. She will use this loan to buy materials, threads and glue for making more shoes. She dreams of building her own house.

Yasinta will share this loan with her loan group "MACLAREN" which has two members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.
