A loan of $1,400 helped a member to buy chickens and sleeping mats to sell.

Qalakoncane Group's story

Getrude is widowed with five children between the ages of 28 and 43. She operates a small store from her home where she sells chickens and sleeping mats. Getrude has been in business for five years and she has three employees. She also receives income from an old age pension program provided by the South African government.

Getrude is requesting a loan from WDB and Kiva to purchase more chickens and sleeping mats to sell. In five years, she hopes to become a wholesaler of chickens and mats to other entrepreneurs. Getrude’s biggest business challenge is that her customers buy on credit and do not repay her. She would like to thank WDB and Kiva and she hopes to make a lot of money from this loan!
