A loan of $4,700 helped a member to invest in her footwear shop.

Ashoki C Group's story

Bertha, who is the mother of one child in school, is in her late thirties and married. She supports her family by running an enterprise selling footwear of different types, a business she has been with for three years. She starts working from 6 am to 6 pm daily and is able to make a fair monthly profit.

This is her third loan request via Kiva partner’s Tujijenge Tanzania. Bertha used the previous loans to purchase more fashionable shoes. She managed to resell them and earned an extra income which she used to buy a plot of land where she wishes to build a house. She covered part of the school fees and home food expenses. Bertha paid back all her loans successfully. She is requesting a new credit to invest in her footwear shop. In the coming years, Bertha would like to build a house and improve her shop more.

She will share this loan with her loan group “Ashoki C“ which consists of four members. The members of this group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Bertha, Linda, Severina, Hafsa
