A loan of $1,600 helped a member to buy weaves, hair chemicals and jewelry.

Ruth Ladies Group's story

Judith is 30 years old. She is married and has three children, age 8, 5 and 2, with one going to school. Her husband works at Masvingo Remand Prison as a lab technician. They stay at a company house where the spouse works.

She works at a salon that is located in Masvingo. She rents a chair from the owner of the salon. She does not have any employees and has been in operation for 10 years. The business faces a challenge of high competition in the market as well as the failure of some of her customers to pay for the products that they have taken on credit.

She wants to purchase weaves, hair chemicals and jewelry with the loan.

She has a vision of opening her own hair salon in the next five years. With the profits she would be able to save for her children's future so that they may be able to have a quality education.
