Greetings from Zimbabwe! This is 50-year-old Tendai from Harare, a married mother of three who also cares for three other dependents. For two years now, Tendai has been producing peanut butter. Her main challenge is limited working capital to allow her to print labels for her peanut butter containers.

Tendai has requested a loan of $500 to purchase peanuts for peanut butter manufacturing and bottles for packaging. She says the extra income generated as a result of this loan will allow her to improve her standard of living.

In the future Tendai plans to purchase a delivery van and more machines in order to meet demand.

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.
