A loan of $1,350 helped a member to buy groceries and other goods for resale.

Wasara Wasara Group's story

Patience is a member of the Wasara Wasara group. She is a 43 year old widow who is hardworking and highly motivated in her work. Patience and four other women in her community came together and formed this group when they realised they needed to take their businesses to a higher level. These women are highly focused and have been meeting every week for the past two months to discuss and find solutions as to how they can grow their small businesses. Most of them are widows so they are the sole providers for their children.
Patience runs a fruit and vegetable stall which is by the roadside. On this stall a few groceries such as sugar, rice and cooking oil are also found. She has been running this stall for two years now, from the time her husband passed on. A loan of USD1,350.00 from Kiva, combined with the strong will that these women possess will definitely yield positive results for them.

In this group: Agnes, Virginia, Shupikai, Patience, Fungai
