Mercy's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy beverages and foodstuffs.
Greetings from Bulawayo in Zimbabwe. Mercy is 41 years old and married with four children, three of whom are attending school. She has, for the last two years, run a bottle store and restaurant with the assistance of five (5) employees. Her main challenge has been limited working capital, which has seen her unable to meet customer demands. She also runs a furniture manufacturing business. Mercy has requested $1,500.00 to buy beverages and foodstuffs for resale. She says the income generated as a result of this loan will help pay for day-to-day household expenses. In the near future, Mercy plans on running a sports bar in town.
