A loan of $1,600 helped a member to increase her grocery shop stock levels.

Mee Group's story

Elita C., 37, operates a retail business that sells groceries in Gweru where she lives. She has applied for this loan through MicroKing for the purposes of increasing her stock levels by buying sugar, rice, bread, soap, etc.

Elita and her husband are both teachers and get their supplementary income from their teaching professions. They have two children aged 13 and 10, both attending school. Elita has been running the business for the past 10 years and she employs one person.

She faces some transportation challenges on deliveries as well as competition. Low stock levels are a cause of concern for her and she hopes that the capital injection will assist on increasing the stock levels. She envisions herself operating from her own shop premises and diversifying into selling electrical goods.
