A loan of $3,250 helped a member to buy clothing, footwear and foodstuffs.

Pear Group's story

Greetings from Bulawayo, the second largest city in Zimbabwe. Coleen is 46 years old, and married with two children, one of whom is attending school. For the last five years she has run a retail shop selling clothing and footwear, and another where she sells food. Her main challenge has been stiff competition from other players in the market. Coleen has requested a $1,500 loan to buy clothing, footwear and foodstuffs for resale. She says the profits realized as a result of this loan will assist in paying school fees for her children. In the future, Coleen plans on running a few more such shops. Coleen is a member of Pear Group.
