A loan of $900 helped a member to buy clothes and cold drinks.

Slethulwazi Group's story

Simangele is 27 years old and single with two children, five and eight years old. Both attend school. She also takes cares of one relative who lives with her. She sells cold drinks from her home in Mtubatuba, South Africa. She is raising her hand in the photo above; she is the second from the left.

She's been in this business for eight years and she also receives a child support grant from the government. She would like to see her business growing over five years' time, having a proper space in town to sell.

She requested this loan through Women’s Development Businesses to buy skirts, shirts and jerseys. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her buy enough food for her family.

She appreciates WDB and KIVA very much.
