Dorcas Group's story
Greetings from Zimbabwe! This is 39-year-old Josephine from Mutare. She is married with three children, all attending school. Josephine runs a retail business selling electrical gadgets. The business has been in operation for 2 years. She says the main challenges faced are the high customs duty at the border post. Josephine has requested a loan of $400 to purchase electrical gadgets for resale. She says the extra income generated as a result of this loan will allow her to send children to better schools ands for them to acquire a better education. In the future, Josephine plans to own her own boutique shop.
