Famille Tasiviwe Group's story

In the beginning Safi was a simple street vendor who stocked up with the large merchants in the local market and then travelled around the city reselling her goods. It wasn’t until later that she opened a shop selling electrical appliances. Thanks to this business, she now supports herself and covers all of her financial expenditures. In the future, she would very much like to invest in the agropastoral sector. Safi is the woman wearing a black blouse in the photo.

In this group: Safi, Kavira
