Kuwirirana Group has fully repaid their loan of £546.10
Wadzanai Vangani is 49 years old and a mother of 2 children. Her eldest daughter lives with her own husband and two children in South Africa, and her younger daughter is unemployed and lives at home. After her husband died in 2003, Wadzanai had to take on the responsibility of being the primary breadwinner for her family. In order to provide for her family, she started her cross-border business trading fish and ‘freezits’ (ice lollies). She is looking to borrow a $100 share of this group loan to grow her business so that she can continue to support her daughter and finish renovating her house, which is currently incomplete. She wants to install electricity.
The Kuwirirana Group is made up of 5 women who run businesses so they can support and provide for their families. With their loans and the support of Lendwithcare’s microfinance partner The MicroLoan Foundation, they will be able to increase their profits so that their family can look forward to a future out of poverty.
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.
