Swunurai's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy more clothing for resale.
This is 37-year-old Swunurai from Harare, the capital of Zimbabwe, which means “he who does not sleep". She is married with one child who attends school. Swunurai runs a retail business, selling women's and men's clothes and shoes. The business has been in operation for 5 years. She says the main challenges faced are lack of working capital and high competition. Swunurai has requested a loan of $500 to buy more clothes and shoes for resale. She says that the extra income generated as a result of this loan will enable her to pay school fees for her child. In the future, Swunurai plans to own her big fashion boutique.
