Her cafe sells chips with fried chicken and other meat fried in pieces. Rukia works from 6am to 6pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

Rukia is requesting her eighth loan from Kiva partner, Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loans (all of which were paid back successfully) to buy cooking ingredients (cooking oil, baking flour, sugar, rice, Irish potatoes, chicken and meats). She bought a nice aluminum cupboard, a place where she keeps chips after being fried, and a fridge to keep soft drinks. Rukia is doing great and is thankful to everyone who has supported her group. Rukia received increased income, which she used to buy a plot of land and build a house. She covered part of school fees and household expenses. With the loan, Rukia will open a barbershop business. In this new business,Rukia will employ somebody in full time but she will be supervising. She dreams of owning a car and improving her family life.

Rukia will share this loan with her loan group" ROYAL GROUP" which totals four members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.
