Because of her spirit of self-improvement and her desire to prosper, Mwanamisi has been selling fruits and green vegetables for two years. She had to start at a very young age to help with the costs of running a home. Her business is in one of the local markets. Mwanamisi works ten hours a day, selling products such as watermelons, bananas, papaya, mangos, melons, coconut and green vegetables. She is glad to do this job as this has been her and her children's lives. Her dream is to provide a better future for her children. Her aim for the loan is to invest it in working capital and stock up her business so that, in the not-too-distant future, she can have a higher income. Mwanamisi thanks Kiva investors for the help they provide to people with little resources so that they can have decent jobs.
