A loan of $1,100 helps a member to buy groceries and clothes to sell.


White Horse Group's story

Susan lives in Chitungwiza, Zimbabwe, where she operates a tuck-shop (general store). She started her business 10 years ago. She usually restocks her groceries in South Africa and also goes to Tanzania to restock clothing.

Susan spends a lot of time on the buses that go to South Africa where she buys groceries to sell. Susan heard about Thrive, and she did not hesitate to approach the company and apply for a loan so that her business could improve.

Susan wakes up early in the morning to clean the shop and dust the shelves so that her tuck-shop is smart all the time.

She is a member of White horse group, the group started with 4 members, but now is only left with 2 members, who have been able to adapt to cash challenges. They are now selling and restocking with Ecocash.

Susan is a 47-year-old mother of 4; she has 2 children still attending school, one at University and one at Secondary school.

Susan obtained a loan that she will use to buy groceries and clothes to sell. The group was happy to be given another loan and they hope to continue working well with Thrive.

In this group: Susan, Betty
