Unity Is The Power Group's story

Theodorah is 52 years, married, and does not have any children. She runs a retail business in Kwa Zulu Natal of Empangeni in South Africa. In the photo she is pictured raising her hand.

She has been in business for 40 years selling live chickens and running a "spazza" shop (spazza shops are small convenient corner stores). She requested this loan throgh WDB and Kiva to buy live chickens and spazza shop stock. She says that extra income from this loan will help her put food on the table for her family and also buy good clothes. She faces a challenge of customers who buy food on credit and fail to pay on time.

Theodorah would like in future to see her business grow and buy a new car. She thanks WDB a lot for lending her this loan amount.
