Ari Mpya Group’s story
Fatma is a very hardworking mother of three children who are in college by now. She is in her mid-forties and has been into clothing sales business for over ten years. She sells traditional outfits, such as vitenge & Khanga, fabrics, bed sheets, pillow cases and linen trousers. She usually works for over 13 hours in a day, and is happy that she is making some reasonable profits to sustain her family.
This will be her third (3rd) loan request from Kiva through Tujijenge Tanzania. With this loan, Fatma will purchase more stocks of fabrics, e.g. vitenge and khanga, bed sheets, pillow cases and stylish skirts for her business to grow. She strongly believes that with such additions, she will be able to uplift her income and support her loving family.
She used her previous loan to upgrade facilities in her store and purchase more stocks of second-hand clothes for her business to grow. With the profit earned, Fatma repaid back her loan in full, covered household expenses, and paid tuition fees for her daughter. Her family is now happy and she is very thankful to Kiva for the maximum support to her business.
Her dream is to grow into a successful clothing vendor someday, and she will share this loan with her fellow group member of “Ari Mpya,” and they will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan in full at maturity.
