In Nyameni, a suburb in Marondera, a woman named Nancy wakes up early in the morning to sit on her rocking chair and start weaving baskets using straw. Her experienced 55-year-old hands move fast with precision as a beautiful piece of work comes into shape. Using paint and colourful beads, she gives the baskets a finishing touch that has become her unique signature. Like a multi-talented craftsman, Nancy also weaves beautiful door mats and blankets. She sells most of her products to tourists and people in the city. Nancy also bakes cakes and scones. Her unique designs and art have attracted a lot of people from as far as Harare. Each day, Nancy receives different requests and designs for cakes and crafted gifts. As a business woman, Nancy plans to move her products up market and open her own shop from where she will sell her products. Her husband is helping her to find a suitable location. She is requesting a loan of $500 to buy flour, straw and fabrics.

Please note that Zimbabwe is at present going through a severe economic recession and that there is an additional risk that some of the loans might be delayed or defaulted.  You can find more information here.
