Kuwadzana Kwemadzimai Group's story

Greetings from Zimbabwe! This is 28-year-old Rudiya from Mutare. Rudiya is a member of the group called Kuwadzana Kwemadzimai. She is single with no children. She cares for one dependent. Rudiya runs a retail business selling electrical goods, furniture and clothes. The business has been in operation for four years. She says the main challenges are late payments from clients who buy on credit and high import duties. Rudiya has requested a loan of $600 of the $1,800 group loan to buy television sets and radios for resale. She says the extra income generated as a result of this loan will allow her to send her sister`s son to a better school. In the future Rudiya plans to build her own shop and expand the business.
