Fortune's story

Greetings from Zimbabwe! This is 31-year-old Fortune from Bulawayo. He is single, with one child; he also cares for one dependent.

Fortune runs a retail business selling consumer groceries, which includes drinks, milk, bread, sugar, rice and other items. The business has been in operation for four years. He says the main challenges he faces are lack of working capital to restock.

Fortune has requested a loan of $750 to restock in bulk, thus avoiding constant trips to wholesalers, since he operates far from the town where they are located. He says the extra income generated as a result of this loan will allow him to cover his expenses, both at home and in the business.

In the future, Fortune plans to save enough from the loan profits to enable him to complete the building of his own shop at the business centre.
