A loan of $300 helped to buy men's clothing from outside the country (where it is cheaper), electrical gadgets, and women's clothing for resale.


Keneth's story

Greetings from Zimbabwe! This is 41-year-old Keneth from Bulawayo. He is married with one child, who attends school. Keneth runs a retail business buying men's jeans, trousers, shoes, and jackets for resale. He also buys electrical gadgets for resale, like adaptors and cellphone accessories, and women's clothing too. The business has been in operation for 8 years. He says the main challenges faced are lack of working capital, and exorbitant duty charges when declaring goods at the border. Keneth has requested a loan of $300 to order more stock and restock new products for winter. He says the extra income generated as a result of this loan will allow him to have more disposable income, which will enable him to pay for rentals and other day-to-day expenses. In the future Keneth plans to own a clothing and electrical shop in the Central Business District.
