Izakahle Group's story

Happiness is 47 years old, married with 5 children who are between ages 14 and 32. One of her children attends school. She earns income from the government’s child support grant. She also receives income from her husband who works for Capacity Company in Richard's Bay.

In the photo above, she is raising up her hand, wearing a white shirt. She’s been in business for the past 2 years and sells perfumes, snacks and clothes from her home.

Happiness requested this loan through WDB and KIVA to buy perfumes, snacks and clothes for resale. She says that the main challenge to her business is customers that buy on credit and fail to pay on time. In five years time she would like to have her own space in town to work properly.

She appreciates WDB and Kiva for helping her with this loan which has low interest.
