Rebecca Shungu's story

This is 27-year-old Rebecca from Harare, the capital of Zimbabwe, which means '"he who does not sleep". She is divorced with one child who attends school. She also cares for one other dependent. Rebecca runs a retail business selling bedspreads, duvets, blankets, socks, jackets and trousers. The business has been in operation for four years. She says the main challenge being faced is competition. Rebecca has requested a loan of $750 to buy bedspreads, duvets and blankets for resale. She says the extra income generated as a result of this loan will allow her to increase her disposable income so that she will send her child to secondary school. In the future Rebecca plans to open her own shop. She is thankful to Kiva and MK for being helpful to her business.
