A loan of $500 helped to buy bulk dried kapenta and fish for resale.


Violet's story

Greetings from Zimbabwe! This is 40-year-old Violet from Bulawayo. She is married and has five children. Four of their children are in primary school and one in secondary school.

Violet runs a retail business selling fresh and dried fish and kapenta (sardines). The business has been in operation for five years. She says the main challenges she faces are transport costs and health tariffs.

Violet has requested a loan of $500 to buy bulk stocks of kapenta and fish for resale. She says the extra income generated as a result of this loan will allow her to supplement her spouse's salary and improve her business capacity as well as their lifestyle.

In the future Violet plans to venture into the poultry business.
