A loan of $1,000 helped a member to buy corn meal and mopane worms.

Hamamaoko Group's story

Greetings from Zimbabwe! This is 49-year-old Chido from Masvingo. Chido is married and has four children, one of whom attends school. Chido runs a food business selling sadza. The business has been in operation for three years. Chido says the main challenge she faces is the shortage of maize, especially in dry seasons when the cost is prohibitive.

Chido has requested a loan of 300 USD to buy maize and mopane worms (a Zimbabwean delicacy). She says the extra income generated as a result of this loan will go towards the purchase of a commercial stand. In the future, Chido plans to have her own stand rather than renting, which is expensive.
