Sithabile's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy clothing and footwear.
Greetings from Bulawayo the second largest city in Zimbabwe. Sithabile is 36 years old and is single with one child who is attending school. Sithabile runs a retail shop selling clothing and footwear. The business has been in operation for the past two years and she has only one employee to assist her. She says the main challenge she is faced with is lack of working capital and high rentals, which has seen her unable to meet customer needs. Sithabile has requested a $500 loan to buy clothing and footwear for resale. She says the income generated as a result of this loan will help pay for her child's school fees and improve the quality of living for her family. In the near future Sithabile would like to own her clothing boutique in town.
