A loan of $3,525 helped a member to buy genge fruits and vegetables to resell.

Mbayuwayu Group's story

Ally is a businessman, aged mid thirties with two schooling daughters. He has had a business of gengeduka (produce stall), selling fruits, vegetables, and other shop items. He has been in this business for three years now and is able to make a good profit each month. Ally runs his business from 7 AM to 8 PM daily.

He is requesting a fourth loan through Tujijenge Tanzania which he will use to buy genge fruits and vegetables to resell. Ally used the previous loans (all of which he paid back successfully) to maintain his business stock of fruits and vegetables. His capital is now greater than before and he serves more people, though people still demand yet more additional products. He is so thankful for Kiva's loan support. He dreams that one day he will be able to open a big shop selling the same and other items. Ally gains a profit which he used to cover school fees and home food expenses.

He will share this loan with his loan group, Mbayuwayu, which totals twelve members. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Ally, Emanuel, Kondo, Mbaraka, Simon, Jafari, Saidi, Scolastica*, Charles, Obed, Kamilius, Muhidini
