Sokuseka Group's story

Marble is a 41-year-old single parent with one child who is 17 years old and who has just finished her secondary education. She lives in Gokwe. She operates a grocery shop and owns the premises. Marble has been in this business for 16 years and has one employee presently. Marble is requesting for a loan of $400 for the purchase of grocery shop items.

Marble says that she faces the challenges of high competition and transport costs from wholesalers to her shop. Marble plans to open another shop at the same business center in Gokwe in the next five years, and to employ at least 5 people. With the income generated from this loan, she will be able to look after her extended family and other dependents from her rural home.
