Gomolucky Group's story

In Chitungwiza, just after 3am, a woman named Otilia wakes up to sit at her hand-driven sewing machine and starts sewing. Otilia has three electric sewing machines, but due to power cuts, she is forced to use her hand-driven machine under candlelight. When daylight arrives, Otilia travels to her workshop to finish off her work. Her main products are curtains, seat covers, bedspreads and other interior decor products. She also occasionally sews wedding gowns whenever she gets orders.

Otilia is a hardworking 30-year-old mother of four children. She plans to build a better future for her children. She wants to expand her business but lacks funding. She has joined hands with other three women and attended financial training at Thrive Microfinance. Their group is called Gomolucky. Otilia will use her portion of the Kiva loan of $350 to buy four rolls of fabric and other sewing materials such as buttons, thread, fasteners and zips.

Gomolucky group hopes that a $1200 loan from Kiva will help them achieve their objectives.
