Greetings from Zimbabwe! This is 29-year-old Tendai from Harare. She is married with one child. Tendai runs a retail business where she sells clothes and footwear. The business has been in operation for two and a half years. She says the main challenge faced is the lack of adequate capital to increase her stock.

Tendai has requested a loan of $1,000 buy more children's wear and shoes for resale. She says the extra income generated as a result of this loan will allow her to build a house for her family. In the future Tendai looks forward to business growth.

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.
