Popoteke Group's story

Greetings from Zimbabwe! This is 48-year-old Maves (holding the yellow folder) from Masvingo. She is married with four children aged 16, 19, 23 and 26. All four children attend school. She also cares for two dependents.

Maves runs a retail business selling clothing and footwear. The business has been in operation for 10 years. She says the main challenge faced are debtors failing to pay up on time.

Maves has requested a loan of $300 to increase her stock. She says the extra income generated as a result of this loan will allow her to improve her quality of life. In the future Maves plans to have grown her business to a point that it can stand alone.
