Sibekiwe's story

Greetings from Zimbabwe! This is 43-year-old Sibekiwe from Bulawayo. She is widowed and stays with her three children. Her two elder children go to a local school.

Sibekiwe runs a retail business selling shoes, skirts, shirts, jackets and jeans for men, women and children. She also sells handbags. The business has been in operation for two years. She says the main challenges she faces are lack of working capital and high import duties.

Sibekiwe has requested a loan of $500 to order a variety of stock and increase her business capacity. She says the extra income generated as a result of this loan will allow her more income to buy food, pay rent and fees for the children in school.

In the future Sibekiwe plans to expand and open a clothing boutique.
