A loan of $1,775 helped a member to buy salon hair products.


Nuru 1 Group's story

Fatuma is in her early forties and has two children who are at school. She is married and has a beauty salon. Fatuma has been in this business for 14 years and is able to make a good monthly profit. She works at her salon from 8:00 am to 10:00 pm every work day. This is Fatuma's 13th loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. She will use the loan to buy salon hair products. Fatuma used her previous loans (all of which she paid back successfully) to buy more beauty and hair products for her business. Fatuma earned extra income that she used to pay school fees and home food expenses. She is so grateful for Kiva's support, which has helped her upgrade her business. She dreams of becoming a successful business woman in the future. Fatuma will share this loan with her loan group "Nuru 1" that has a total of six members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Fatuma, Samwel, Betty, Elitumbe, Robert, Tamasha
