Ok Mufaose Vendors -A Group's story

This is 44-year-old Raphael from Machipisa, Harare, the capital of Zimbabwe. He is married and has two children, both are attending school. Raphael runs a services business selling fruits and vegetables. His business has been in operation for 3 years. He says the main challenge he faces is the loss of products due to the unavailability of proper storage for perishables. Raphael has requested a loan of $400 to buy fruits and vegetables for resale. He says the extra income generated as a result of this loan will allow him to pay school fees for his children. In the future, Raphael plans to own a piece of land so that he can grow the produce himself.
