KIVA Update from Tanzania

KIVA – Loans that change lives

Greetings from Tanzania! Thank you for supporting Suzana, a very hard working food vendor and the “Km-Garden Tazara” group. With the loan received, she increased her food inventory as a Mama-Lishe and replenished her food stall with more sacks of rice, wheat flour, baking powder, and other ingredients for making spicy liquid rice and chapatti that are in high demand during Easter festivals.

She used the additional profit to pay her loan dues, covered household expenses and reinvested for her business to grow. She dreams of having a restaurant in the near future. Suzana and the “Km-Garden Tazara” group are very grateful for the loan and thankful to everyone who had supported them.
