Kururama Group's story

Janet is a married woman aged 60 years with three children, all of whom are married. She lives with her husband and two dependants in their house in Gweru.

Janet is cross-border trader who goes to South Africa and Botswana twice a month, where she sells seat covers and bedspreads. She has had this business since 1975. The business is affected by high tarriffs, import duty, and transport costs. With the amount of US$400 she applied for, Janet will buy material to make seat covers and bedspreads for sale.

With the loan of US$400 she has applied for, Janet intends to diversify her business into poultry, where she looks foward to buying about 1000 chicks. This will enable her to pay school fees for her two grandchildren.
