A loan of $2,000 helped a member to buy sewing materials.


Tawananyasha Dzamwari Group's story

This is 46-year-old Lydia from Machipisa, Harare. She is married with four children; two are attending school. She also cares for two dependents.

Lydia runs a services business producing clothes. The business has been in operation for 10 years. She says the main challenge she faces is electricity, which is in short supply in the country.

Lydia has requested a loan of $400 to buy sewing materials ranging from fabric to sewing threads. She says the extra income generated as a result of this loan will allow her to support the two orphans left behind by her late sister and her own children. In the future, Lydia plans to own a factory shop for sewing.
