Ntombezinhle's story

Greetings from Zimbabwe! This is 34-year-old Ntombezinhle from Bulawayo. She is married and has one child, who attends primary school. Ntombezinhle runs a retail business. She sells footwear and a variety of clothing items. The business has been in operation for at least nine years now. She orders her stuff outside the country where it is relatively cheap and of good quality. She says the main challenges faced are competition and high import duty when bringing in a lot of stuff. Ntombezinhle has requested a loan of $500 to buy shoes,balnkets and clothes for resale. She says the extra income generated as a result of this loan will enable her to have more income to buy food and pay fees for her child, as well as pay rentals for her business premises. The money will also go a long way in uplifting her business. In the future Ntombezinhle plans to open more stalls around town and a clothing boutique.
