A loan helped to buy three big flat screens and one big fridge for her electronics shop.

Madalitso Group's story

Nancy is one member of the Madalitso group. She is age 34 and divorced with one child, one orphan and seven relatives who rely upon her.

Nancy owns an electronics shop. She would like to buy three big flat screens and one big fridge with her portion of the loan.

The profits will help her in paying for her children's school fees. She started the business to be independent financially, and one of her family members works with her.

Nancy's ambition is to purchase a pickup truck and to work with an increased capital in a couple of years.
