A loan of $4,000 helped a member to buy jeans, tackies (informal tennis shoes), skirts, blankets, and tops for sale.

Queens Group's story

Miriam lives in Gweru in the Midlands province of Zimbabwe. She is 32 years old, married and has four children aged 11, 9, 7 and 3. Three are attending school. Her husband is a builder.

Mariam has a flea market stall where she sells clothes. She has been in this business for one year. Her main challenge is the lack of capital to buy a wider variety of clothes for sale.

The US$400 loan she is applying for will go towards the purchase of more stock for her business. With additional income realised from her business, Miriam intends to buy two cattle.

In the future, Miriam plans to have a shop at the Chachacha Business Centre.

In this group: Miriam, Vongai, Ndakaitei, Sarudzai, Shamiso, Sekai, Enia, Sifikile, Mavis, Patience
