Chikanga Stars Group's story

Greetings from Zimbabwe! This is 47-year-old Letwin from Mutare. She is widowed with three children. She also cares for one other dependent. Letwin runs a retail business selling clothes, and she is a member of the Chikanga Stars group. The business has been in operation for seven years. She says the main challenges faced are high import duties at border posts and stiff competition. Letwin has requested a loan of $600 to buy clothes for resale in town. She says the extra income generated as a result of this loan will allow her to expand her business and improve her family's general welfare. In the future, Letwin plans to operate a boutique shop in town.
