A loan of $4,000 helped a member to buy wax for candle making.


Kushinga Group's story

Esnut, a 50-year-old married mother of four, lives in Gweru, where she also cares for two dependents. For the past five years Esnut has been operating a manufacturing business producing candles. She says the main challenge faced is high competition from well-established manufacturers.

Esnut has requested a loan of $400 to purchase wax, dye and string. The extra income arising from this loan will allow her to finish building her rural home and feed her family an improved diet. In the future, Esnut plans to open a small manufacturing company.
