Lord Share Group's story

Lillian is a married woman, age 38. She lives with her husband and her three children age 7, 12, and 18, all of whom attend school. Her husband works for city of Mutare as a plumber and his salary adds to the total family income.

Lillian is a cross-border trader and mainly buys from South Africa and Botswana. She buys and sells blankets, jeans, shirts, dresses, and other clothes. The business has been in existence since 2005. The main drawback to the business is the import duty charges, late payments from her customers, and theft.

Currently she requests a loan of $400, which she will use to increase her stock. If the business goes on well, she looks forward to get more income and be able to pay school fees for her children and improve her standard of living.
