Katete, Zambia, Zambia
Khamalidyetsa (Chdz) Group needed £1660.14 for their business.
This loan is for a group named Khamalidyestsa women’s group of Chadiza, which has 12 members aged between 22 and 61. Most of these women are married and some are widowed. They have 75 children in school and also care for 13 orphans. They started their businesses for different reasons but mostly to reduce the poverty levels within their families and to be financially independent. The group is applying for its second loan.
Victoria Phiri, 49, is a member of this group. She is married and has four children who are in school. She runs a market stall selling beans, ‘kapenta’ (small fish) and tomatoes. She has been doing this business at the side of a busy road in her community for over fifteen years now. She is requesting her share of this loan to order potatoes, tomatoes and beans for her stall. Victoria will use part of her profits to send her children to school and she hopes to be able to build a small grocery stall where she can work from. She is also saving to buy a plot of land where they can build a family house. As a woman she is grateful and happy for the loans she has accessed as it has helped her look after her children and to support herself.
