    CHIREDZI – Over 300 women have opened accounts with the Women's Bank in Chiredzi, a sign that the idea of the special bank is popular.
    The women opened the bank accounts at a function at Duma City in Chiredzi recently.
    The women, most of them farmers under Zimbabwe Sugar Development Association (ZSDA); Commercial Sugarcane Farmers Association of Zimbabwe (CSFAZ) and the Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs) said they were now proud owners of Women's Bank accounts.
    Speaking during the opening of accounts ZSDA chairman Edmore Veterai said the idea of a women's bank mooted years ago will go a long way in empowering women. He said sugarcane associations have thrown their weight behind the women and the bank.
    "We created many clusters for women in the district where they are doing various projects. This year they will be exhibiting their products. The idea of a women's bank was mooted in 1982 and it has taken so long," said Veterai.
    This event was for ZSDA
