Cheryl's story

Greetings from Zimbabwe! This is 40-year-old Cheryl from Bulawayo. She is divorced and stays with her three children. Two of her children go to school. Cheryl runs a retail business selling various clothing items and footwear for both kids, men and women. The business has been in operation for over 10 years. She says the main challenges that she faces are the lack of adequate working capital and competition from bigger retailers who offer credit facilities. Cheryl has requested a loan of $500 to replenish her stocks and introduce new products for the winter season, as well as other winter goods like blankets and winter jackets. She says the extra income generated as a result of this loan will allow her to supplement her household income and improve her business capacity. In the future, Cheryl plans to open a clothing boutique.
