What Are You Most Passionate About?

I love to manage money. For me money is a way to exchange services.

Who Is Your Hero? Why?

My brother, because he supported me throughout any challenges I encountered in my life.

What Is Your Favorite Sound?

I like the sound of the bell when people walk into my shop.

What project would a laptop help you with? Give a short description.

Poor people lack access to financial services. Many women in our villages would like to start a small business but cannot access the initial capital they need to develop it. We will teach women about loans, saving groups, micro enterprise and village community banking while helping them set up these solutions within their communities. A laptop would help me to track loans repayments.

What do you love about this project?

I love being able to share my knowledge with others.

What Languages do you speak?
