Matrix Group's story
Survival is the driving force that keeps 64-year-old Mavis persistent despite the challenges she faces in life. She acknowledges that challenges are only a test in life and one has to break the barriers in order to achieve success. Mavis is a cross border trader. She restocks once or twice a month from South Africa. Despite the harsh economic environment and policy changes in Zimbabwe, Mavis is a survivor and has been in the game for too long to be deterred from achieving her dreams. She is a widowed mother of 3 children who strives to raise her family with the earnings from her business. Mavis restocks various clothing such as shirts, trousers, skirts, t-shirts, as well as other clothing. She also restocks various shoes for both adults and children. Occasionally she stocks, as per order, larger goods such as fridges, wardrobes, kitchen units and gas or electric stoves. Mavis is asking for a loan to restock various summer clothing such as vests, light shirts, blouses, shorts and fashionable shoes including sandals, tennis and sneakers.
