A loan of $2,800 helped a member to pay import duty and buy some clothes for resale.

Angel Group's story

This is 39-year-old Ottilia from Machipisa, Harare. She is married and has two children, as well as a dependent she is also looking after. Ottilia runs a retail business selling clothes for both adults and babies. The business has been in operation for two years.

Ottilia says her main business challenges are competition, which is becoming very stiff, and lack of capital to purchase more inventory. Ottilia has requested a loan of 400 USD to pay for duty as most of her products are imported from countries like South Africa, Botswana, Mozambique, and Zambia. With the extra income generated as a result of this loan, she will be able to afford school fees for her three school-going children. In the future, Ottilia plans to operate from the Central Business District in Harare.

In this group: Ottilia, Tom, Brighton, Stephen, Ephie, Patience, Simbarashe
