At her retail outlet in Jinja, 26-year-old Anita sells stoves, cups, plates, glasses, wrapping paper, etc. Her business took root five years ago.
Anita is still single and without children. Five years of experience have brought her to terms with the grueling rigors and at times, the tough trivial routine of running a business.
Anita goes about her business with diligence, determination, and grit. These are the principles which have helped her overcome adversity and make strides.
Anita hopes to venture out into importing what she sells, on the basis of the fact that she spends excessively in making purchases.
She is upbeat about her prospects once she embarks on direct importing of stoves, glasses, plates, cutlery, etc. from Kenya.
She says this Kiva loan will come in handy for the purchase of the merchandise to resell.
