A loan of $2,000 helped a member to buy more beer and soft drinks.

Confidence Group's story

Jennifer is a single woman who is age 30. She stays in Shurugwi with her three children who are ages 13, 10 and 7. All of the children are still in school. Jennifer also looks after her 4 brothers, one of whom also is in school.

Jennifer operates a bottle store and the business is doing well. She does not have any employees. She mainly sells scuds (locally brewed beer), pints, quarts, ciders and soft drinks. The challenges facing the business are inadequate funding and high transport costs.

Jennifer has a loan of $400.00 which she used to increase her stock. The loan will help her look after her extended family and put her in a position to send them to better schools. She looks forward to expanding her business by opening another bottle store in the next five years.
