Ok Mufaose Vendors -A Group's story

This is 45-year-old Raphael from Harare, the capital of Zimbabwe. He is married with two children, one attending school. Raphael runs an agriculture business selling vegetables. The business has been in operation for 15 years. He says the main challenges faced are storage of perishables. Raphael has requested a loan of $300 to buy vegetables. He says the extra income generated as a result of this loan will allow him to assist in the up-keep of his family. In the future, Raphael plans to open more vegetable outlets throughout the country.
