Taeletausia is a forty two year old woman with five children. She doesn't have a job and is now staying home to look after the children. That’s why she applied for the $300 loan to start her small business of selling ice-cake and pop-corn. Even though she sells these foods, she thinks that it is still not enough money to support her kids' education and sustain her family's needs. She is willing to get another loan to extend her business by adding a fast food stall to her current business. She is very happy for her business and she wishes to stay in it so that she can get more help through Kiva's loans.
