Thembinkosi's story

Greetings from Zimbabwe! This is 56 year old Thembinkosi from Bulawayo. She is married and has one child who attends school. Thembinkosi runs a retail business, selling various clothing items, footwear and blankets. The business has been in operation for two years. She says the main challenges faced are high import duties charged at the border and lack of capital to boost the business. Thembinkosi has requested a loan of $1,000 so that she can order more stock, and restock winter wear as well. She says the extra income generated as a result of this loan will help in paying her day-to-day expenses, both at home and in the business. In the future, Thembinkosi plans to open more outlets in her rural home as well as other surrounding areas.
