Busyhands Group's story

Yvonne is 42 years old and lives in Gweru. She is married and her husband is a driver. They have three children aged 21, 19 and 13 and all of them go to school. They also look after four further dependants.

She sells clothing and electrical goods in a nearby market and employs two people. They also have income from her husband's salary and from farming. Yvonne faces a number of challenges in her business including competition, high levels of import duty and late payments from customers.

She will use the money she borrows to buy jackets, televisions, speakers and generators.

Yvonne hope that her business will continue to expand enabling her to pay school fees, buy household items and food and generally improve their standard of living.
