Mbodze is 42 years old, and is a widow with seven children, all of whom are dependent on her support.

Mbodze is a hard-working, responsible woman with a desire to succeed. She has been running a corner store business from her house for the last two years. In her corner store, she sells daily consumed products in small quantities, such as coffee, rice, beans, sugar, firewood, milk, eggs, detergents, soap and wheat flour. The business came out of needing a source of income to help with the household expenses.

The object of the loan is to invest it in business capital and to stock her store in order to generate more income. Mbodze is grateful for the help Kiva investors offer those with few resources, so that they can have a dignified work environment.
