Cynthia's story

Greetings from Zimbabwe! This is 22-year-old Cynthia from Bulawayo. She is married, and the couple have one child. Cynthia runs a retail business. She mainly sells clothes, including jeans, trousers, skirts, suits for both men and women, and footwear. She also stocks other goods, such as suitcases, blankets and solar panels. The business has been in operation for two years. She says the main challenges she faces are competition from larger retailers and high travel costs and import duties. Cynthia has applied for a loan of $400 to buy clothes and solar panels for resale. She says the extra income generated as a result of this loan will allow her to improve her family's welfare and enable her to pay for her kid's education. In the future, Cynthia plans open a boutique in town.
