A loan of $3,200 helped a member to buy grocery items for her store.


Advance Group's story

This is Chiedza, a 41-year-old single mother from Masvingo. She is the mother of a 12-year-old child who is still going to school.

Chiedza is in the retail business of a general store in Masvingo. She has been in the business for six years and has one employee working for her. She gets much of her grocery stock from wholesalers in Masvingo town.

Chiedza has requested a loan of $400 to buy additional grocery stock for resale. Extra income from this loan will enable her to look after her child well. She says high competition in the market is the major challenge. However, she has a vision of owning various branches in and around Masvingo town in the next five years.

In this group: Chiedza, Judith, Rosaria, Rosemary, Dorothy, Lilian, Netsai, Tracy
