A loan of $800 helped a member to restock clothes and shoes.


Navigator Group's story

Shupikai is in the cross-border trade business. She is a single mother with one child, who is not yet going to school. She started her business four years ago after she saw that the people in her community were travelling long distances to purchase products such as bedding, shoes, and clothing.

The 35-year-old mother has to support her child socially and financially by ensuring that the food she eats is healthy.

The need for a capital injection in order to boost their businesses made Shupikai and her group members approach Thrive for a group loan. She used her loan portion to buy clothes and shoes.
