A loan of $2,000 helped a member to buy traditional herbs from Harare to supply to the town of Mutare.

Gift Group's story

Greetings from Zimbabwe! This is 53-year-old Alice from Mutare. Alice is a member of Gift Group. She is widowed with four children, and three are attending school. Her business of selling traditional herbs has been in operation for 11 years. She says the main challenges faced are high transport cost and the stiff competition that arises. Alice has requested a loan to purchase traditional herbs from Harare (Zimbabwe's capital) to supply to various people in and around Mutare. She says the extra income generated as a result of this loan will allow her to improve her family's general welfare. In the future, Alice plans to own a herbal shop.
