Sheila's story

Greetings from Zimbabwe! This is 50-year-old Sheila from Bulawayo. She is a single mother with one child. Sheila runs a retail business. She sells a variety of clothing and footwear items for men, kids and women. The business has been in operation for 13 years. She says the main challenges faced that she faces are competition from bigger retailers and exorbitant import duties at the border. Sheila has requested a loan of $400 to replenish her stock and buy a new stock for winter. She says the extra income generated as a result of this loan will allow her to improve both her business and her lifestyle. In the future, Sheila plans to open a clothing boutique.
