Cletos
Greetings from Zimbabwe! This is 36-year-old Cletos from Harare. He is married with one child. Cletos runs a clothing business where he sells clothes. The business has been in operation for 3 years. He says the main challenges faced by his business are lack of capital and stiff competition. Cletos has requested a loan of $750 to buy more clothes for resale. He says the extra income generated as a result of this loan will allow him to improve his family's living standard. In the future, Cletos plans to open a large shop.

About MicroKing Finance

MicroKing's loans are guaranteed against institutional default (failure of MicroKing to repay Kiva lenders if the borrower repays MicroKing) by MicroKing's parent company: Kingdom Financial Holdings Limited.

More About MicroKing
This loan is administered by MicroKing Finance, Kiva’s first partner in Zimbabwe.

MicroKing’s mandate is to provide financial services integrated with advisory services and targeted training to the under-banked but rapidly growing Zimbabwean micro-enterprise sector. The intent is to mobilize the underprivileged as active agents in fighting poverty as well as to accelerate the country’s journey back to economic prosperity where Zimbabwe was once known as the “bread basket of Africa.”

Zimbabwean micro-enterprises are generally run by women and comprise a multitude of business types. Constraints on local production and manufacturing capacity have led to cross-border trading being the most common type of business.
