Greetings from Zimbabwe! This is 28-year-old Wiriranai from Chitungwiza. He is married with three children, one still attending school. He also cares for one dependent. Wiriranai runs a retail business of buying and selling eggs. The business has been in operation for 15 years. He says the main challenges faced are competition in pricing system and the availability of eggs during the winter season. Wiriranai has requested a loan of $500 to buy more eggs. He says the extra income generated as a result of this loan will allow him to improve the welfare of his family. In the future, Wiriranai plans to own a wholesale egg market in the central business district.

More About MicroKing
This loan is administered by MicroKing Finance, Kiva’s first partner in Zimbabwe.

MicroKing’s mandate is to provide financial services integrated with advisory services and targeted training to the under-banked but rapidly growing Zimbabwean micro-enterprise sector. The intent is to mobilize the underprivileged as active agents in fighting poverty as well as to accelerate the country’s journey back to economic prosperity where Zimbabwe was once known as the “bread basket of Africa.”

Zimbabwean micro-enterprises are generally run by women and comprise a multitude of business types. Constraints on local production and manufacturing capacity have led to cross-border trading being the most common type of business.
