Greetings from Zimbabwe! This is 27-year-old Cynthia from Harare, a married mother of one child. For three years now, Cynthia has been running a retail business selling cellphones and accessories. Her main challenge is high competition.

Cynthia has requested a loan of $750 to buy more cellphones for resale. She says the resulting extra income generated will allow her to improve her family's standard of living. In the future, Cynthia plans to become a supplier of cellphones to other retailers in Harare.

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.
