A loan of $500 helped to buy shoes and clothes for resale.

Sipho's story

Greetings from Zimbabwe! This is 55-year-old Sipho from Bulawayo. She is married and has four children.

Sipho runs a retail business in town. She sells footwear and clothing items for children and adults. The business has been in operation for over four years. She says the main challenges she faces are competition from bigger retailers, lack of capital and high import duties.

Sipho has requested a loan of $500 to buy shoes and clothes for resale. She says the extra income generated as a result of this loan will allow her to supplement her spouse's income and enable her to buy food and pay rent and school fees for the children in school.

In the future Sipho plans to open a clothes boutique and other stalls around town.
