Mitirikwi Group's story

Greetings from Zimbabwe! This is 54-year-old Evelyn (holding the yellow file) from Masvingo. She is married with four children, all of whom have attended school. She also cares for two dependants. Evelyn runs a retail business selling blankets, clothes and shoes and employs two people. The business has been in operation for 11 years. She says the main challenges faced are market factors as those clients in the target market only get cash towards month's end.

Evelyn has requested a loan of $300 to increase her stock levels of products. She says the extra income generated as a result of this loan will allow her to improve her family’s quality of life - increased stocks mean increased sales which in turn mean more income for the family. In the future Evelyn plans to own a shop and grinding mill.
