Kamotsi Group's story

This is 42-year-old Eve from Machipisa, Harare. She is widowed with three children, all of whom attend school. Eve also takes care of an orphan who is in first grade. For the past 15 years, she has run a business tailoring school uniforms. Her main business challenges are an erratic power supply and stiff competition.

Eve is requesting a 400 USD loan to buy fabric and other tailoring materials. She plans to use the extra income generated with her loan to improve her family's diet and pay school fees. In the future, Eve plans to own a factory and employ workers.
