Wendy's story

Greetings from Zimbabwe! This is 38-year-old Wendy from Harare. She is single with two children and one is attending school. Wendy runs a retail business producing bedspreads, curtains, seat covers and uniforms. The business has been in operation for 12 years. She says the main challenges faced are frequent power cuts, which result in them resorting to generator usage which in turn increases costs. Wendy has requested a loan of $300 to purchase clothing material for school uniforms. She says the extra income generated as a result of this loan will be used on family needs and requirements. In the future she plans to have a self-sustaining and viable business model which is capable of creating employment.
