Isenzesihle Group's story

She has been in business for six years selling traditional mates and bananas at her home. She also receives income from a government child support grant. Sindisiwe requested this loan through WDB and Kiva to buy flowers and vegetables to increase her stock. She says the main challenge she faces in her business is her bananas because she cannot keep them for more than a week. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her improve her life and her family. In the future, she would like to grow her business.
