A loan of $3,450 helped a member to buy housing, a telephone charger, movies, tapes and DVDs.

Wang'ae Group's story

Mohamedi, who is in his early 20s, is a single father of a small child. He has been running a library business since 2012. He works from 8 am to 9 pm daily, and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This will be Mohamedi's fourth loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He fully repaid his previous ones, which he used to buy up-to-date DVDs and paint the library office. Profits went toward caring for his child and paying household expenses. Mohamedi will use this loan to buy housing, a telephone charger, movies, tapes and DVDs. He dreams of owning a very big international library, and appreciates Kiva for supporting their group.

Mohamedi will share this loan with his group "WANG'AE" which has 12 members who will hold each other accountable for repaying the loan.

In this group: Mohamedi, Anna, Tina, Hamis, Kadiri, Stanley, Solomoni, Jackson, Maliam, Fatihia, Dickson, Protas*
