A loan of $3,675 helped a member to restock on charcoal and firewood to resell.


Nissan Group's story

Zaina, who is 30 years old, is single, with two children who are in school. For ten years now, Zaina makes her family's living by running a business, selling charcoal and firewood. She does business from 7am to 6pm daily and she is able to make a very good monthly profit. From Kiva partner, Tujijenge Tanzania, this is Zaina's eighth loan request, which she will use to restock on charcoal and firewood to resell. With her previous loans, all of which were successfully paid back, Zaina bought the same stocks to service more people. She used the increased income to cover school fees and home food expenses and she bought a TV, mattress, sofa set, and radio. She is so happy and thankful to everyone who has supported her group. She dreams of building a house for her family. Zaina will share this loan with her loan group, Nissan Group, which totals five members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Zaina, Hadija, Secilia, Siwatu, Maida
