A loan of $1,550 helped a member to buy drinks.

Vukuzame Group's story

Nikeziwe is 44 years old and married with 3 children, between 15 and 23 years. She cares for one relative. She runs a retail business in Nkandla in Kwa Zulu Natal, South Africa. In the photo above she is standing on the far left

She's been in this business for 1 year and sells chips and drinks at her home. She says that the main challenges to her business are customers who buy on credit and fail to pay on time.

She requested this loan through Women’s Development Businesses to buy drinks. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her send her children to a higher education institution and will help her have more stock to make a profit. In the future, she hopes to see her business grow, and end up having a spazza shop ( spazza shops are small corner stores where you can buy food, drink and other basics).

In her comments she adds that WDB has helped her a lot and they must continue helping others
