Tatenda Group's story

Greetings from Zimbabwe! This is 36 year old Shillah from Masvingo. Shillah a is single parent with three children, all of whom are attending school. Shillah runs a retail business which sells electrical gadgets, clothes, and groceries. The business has been in operation for 12 years. She says the main challenge she is facing is of the high transportation costs of ferrying goods from the wholesaler to her shop. Shillah has requested a loan of $1000 to buy electrical gadgets, pots, and groceries for resale. She says the extra income generated as a result of this loan will allow her to boost her family welfare. In the future Shillah plans to buy a commercial stand and build her own block of shops.
