Thanks to her entrepreneurial spirit and motivation for getting ahead in life, Mwanakombo was able to open up a clothing sales business three years ago. Her store is located in one of the markets in her town, and she works ten hours there each day.
She plans to use the support from this loan to purchase merchandise to stock her business, including: pants, shirts, blouses, tank tops, shorts, skirts, towels, sheets, underwear, etc.
Mwanakombo is grateful to Kiva lenders for this opportunity and for their support of hardworking people who desire to have an honest job and make a living.
