A loan of $1,500 helped a member to buy shoes, skirts and blouses for resale.


Future Focus Group's story

This is 43-year-old Susan from Mutare, the capital of Manicaland province in Zimbabwe. She is widowed with two children, one of whom is attending school. Susan runs a clothing business selling foot wear and clothes, which she buys from South Africa and Mozambique. The business has been in operation for five years. She says the main challenges faced are high customs duty at the border post. Susan has requested a loan of $500 USD to buy more blouses, skirts and foot wear. She says the extra income generated as a result of this loan will allow her to take her child to a better school. In the future, Susan plans to open a boutique shop were she will operate at a larger scale and be able to have a much bigger client base. MicroKing has helped her so much since the loans are much cheaper than other financiers in the market.
