A loan of $1,400 helps a member to restock motor parts in bulk for her business.


Kanezy Group's story

In most parts of the world, women of the 21st century are undoubtedly the luckiest. Women are now able to give and take challenging roles in society. Women have developed the ability to get around obstacles, achieve without needing confrontation, and lead indirectly. Most women have learned instinctively to use their power in their daily private lives as well as in their respective careers.

Madrate started selling spare motor parts one year ago. She felt the need to supply spare motor parts and provide the community with good quality products.

Madrate is a 27-year-old single lady who works at Gaza Land and resides at Glenview, Harare, where she is a tenant. She heard about Thrive through an active client, and she quickly partnered with her business friends to form a group which they named Kanezy. The group consists of four women who practice various businesses which include selling clothes, blankets, cosmetics, and weaves. The group accessed financial training and learned about marketing, record keeping, and savings. Madrate hopes to practice record-keeping on a daily basis to keep track of her business and forecast her sales.

She has acquired a loan so that she can restock a large quantity of spare parts. She anticipates an elevated demand and hopes to earn high returns so she can open her own shop.

In this group: Evelyn, Linda, Lynn, Madrate
