Tichakunda Group's story

Annie M. is the leader of the Tichakunda group. She is a 35 year old single mother of 4 children aged 19, 14, 10 and 5. Three of the children attend school. She has a business of selling Kapenta dried fish (matemba) and beans in Gweru-Zimbabwe. She has been running this business for two and a half years. She does not have any other sources of income. Her business has small profit margins that force her to push on volumes.

Annie requested this loan through MicroKing for the purposes of purchasing dried fish and beans. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her improve her household lifestyle and increase her disposable income. She envisions herself operating a shop with 4 employees.
