Blue Group's story

Blue Group is a group of two businesswomen who are joined together for the sake of searching for financial support. Currently, the group is performing better and looks as if they will get more support to make great changes to their businesses.

Mwanahawa is one of the group members who is carrying the group profile. She is a businesswoman who is in her early forties, married, and a proud mother of two school age daughters. Since 2000, she has been supporting her family with a mamalishe business, a business commonly used by middle/low class people. Her customers are happy because she knows how to make them feel better by cooking nice and delicious food. She works from 6:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. daily and is able to realize a good profit.

She is requesting her fourteenth loan via Kiva partner's Tujijenge Tanzania. With her previous credit repaid successfully, she bought a fridge to sells cold soft drinks and cooking ingredients like rice, cooking oil, maize, baking flour, vegetables etc. Mwanahawa received an extra income, which she used to buy a digital deck and covered part of the school fees and household expenses. She dreams of becoming a woman of more businesses. She will use her loan to replace old business chairs and tables with new ones. Mwanahawa will share this loan with her group member and together they will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Mwanahawa, Anna
