Kwekwe is a hard-working individual as a result of great financial difficulties she experienced at home. She decided to start working by selling charcoal so that she could generate income to help out financially. Kwekwe started her business five years ago. Due to difficulties with accumulating capital, she has not been able to grow her business much so that she can respond to the many orders she has received from her customers. However, with great effort and long hours, she has found ways to overcome these obstacles.

Kwekwe is requesting a loan in order to buy more sacks of charcoal so that she can fill some of the larger orders she has received from her customers. She also dreams of providing a better quality of life for her family.
