A loan of $2,575 helped a member to buy stock of beer, sodas, water and juices.

Mbuni Group's story

Tatu, who is in her early 30s, is a divorcee and has two schooling sons. She manages a grocery selling beers, sodas, water, and juices. She also sells fish oil, a business she has been with for one year and six months. Tatu works from 8am to midnight daily and is able to make a very good profit each month.

This is her third loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania, which she will use to buy stock of beer, sodas, water, and juices. She used the previous loan, since repaid, to start her grocery business (bought tables, chairs, crates of beers and sodas). She made a profit, part of which she used to cover school fees and part of which she plowed back into her businesses. Tatu is so proud to be with Kiva. She believes her business will grow and that she will be able to build a house.

She will share this loan with her loan group "Mbuni," which consists of seven members. The group members will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Tatu, Leila, Mariam, Zaidani, Sahbin, Carisma, Asha
