Kumboyedza 1 Green Group's story

Greetings from Zimbabwe! Here we see 43-year-old Silindeni, who lives in the town of Gweru. She is married, has five children and also cares for three other dependents. She earns a living by running a farm and poultry business, and her main crops are green maize, onions, cabbage, sugar beans and butter nuts. She has been in this line of work for 24 years and says that her main challenges are debtors not paying on time and a shortage of working capital. Silindeni is applying for a loan for $400 to buy seeds and fertilizer. She says the extra income generated by this loan will allow her to have more disposable income and hence care for her family and improve her standard of living. In the future, she hopes to enlarge her farm and be more self sustaining.
