A STREET vendor has emerged one of the winners of 5m/- Vodacom Tanzania's ongoing 'Mahela' promotion.
The vendor, Mr Adam Ramadhani (20), a resident of Gongo la Mboto in Dar es Salaam, had until his big win been selling shoes in the city.
Speaking to reporters in excitement following the announcement of his big scoop in Dar es Salaam yesterday, the vendor said he had invested only 300,000/- as capital for his business. "To be able to run a business in the current market situation you need substantial capital.
"My dream has now come true; I will acquire a business licence, rent space, and be able to order a sufficient stock to strengthen my business," said Mr Ramadhani. He added: "I have spent a long time trying to build up capital without success. I'm grateful to Vodacom for this promotion."
Another 5.0m/- winner in the same promotion was Rashid Kagombora of Bukoba rural in Kagera, while nine other winners took home 1m/- each.
The nine winners from this week's pool are Msimbano Laurian (Mtwara), Deograsia Mrutu (Morogoro), Emmanuel Ndunguru (Ruvuma- Mbinga), Rose John (Mwanza), and Queenbesta Bitesigirwe (Bagamoyo).
Others are Athanasio Nghambi (Dodoma). Others are Khalid Mashauri (Dar es Salaam), Fikirini Msumi (Dodoma), and George Tano (Dar es Salaam).
