Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

A loan of $1,675 helped a member to buy more chickens for sale.

Tausi Group's story

Meshack Rameck, age 34, is married with one son of 11 years. He has a chicken business which he started in 2003. He works daily from 8am until 6pm and is able to earn a monthly profit of about $238.

This will be Meshack’s second loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. He used the first loan to increase on the stock of his chicken and has paid the loan back successfully. He now hopes for a new loan to expand his chicken business.

Meshack will share this loan with subgroup A of the Tausi group. The subgroup has seven members, who run shops and sell charcoal and food. These members hold each other accountable in paying back their loans. In the picture, Meshack is second from left, standing

In this group: Meshack, Fred, Francis, Victoria, Paulo, Emanuel, Oliva
