A loan of $4,000 helped a member to buy matemba (dried fish).

Muchakata Group's story

Lovemore is 30 years old and lives in Masvingo with his wife and only child, who is seven years old and attends school.

Lovemore works in the local market selling matemba, a small dried fish. His wife helps him. They have been doing this for 4 years. The main limit to growth is a lack of capital. Lovemore will use the loan to buy more fish to sell. He will use the profit to ensure a better future for his child and pay school fees.

In the future, they would like to wholesale and package matemba as well as sell them retail.

In this group: Lovemore, Nyembezi, Elizabeth, Apenifiya, Betty, Serina, Muriro, Letiwe, Happyness, Isabel
