A loan helped to restock groceries for her tuck shop.

Charmel Group's story

Milliana is 35 years old and a resident of Zengeza, Chitungwiza. She currently runs a good grocery tuck shop and has been doing so for the past two years now. She says she has always wanted to be her own boss, and to achieve it, she started saving. The little savings were the seed for her business. Milliana is married with three children, and her husband is self-employed as a car dealer.

She always has busy days as she performs both the duties of a mother and those of a business lady. Milliana is responsible for the restocking and also attending to customers as she does not have any employees. She pays monthly rentals. Her business is really helping in supporting her family and improving their livelihood.

Milliana and her two friends formed the Charmel Group and attended training before taking out a loan. She used her share for restocking groceries for the tuck shop.
