Rufina M's story

This is 39-year-old Rufina from Chitungwiza, a high-density suburb located about 30 km from the capital city, Harare. She is married and has four children, three attending school. She also cares for two dependents.

Rufina runs a clothing business selling ladies' outfits, menswear and shoes. The business has been in operation for five years. She says the main challenge is competition with established companies.

Rufina has requested a loan of $600 to buy clothes and shoes for resale. She says the extra income generated as a result of this loan will allow her to be in a position to pay school fees and look after the family.

In the future, Rufina plans to open a shop in the central business district.
