but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to restock groceries and cosmetics for her tuck shop.

Gwindingwi Group's story

Whilst others might use the “pocket money” from their spouses to buy beautification items or generally spoiling themselves, Maggie saved hers and used it as start-up capital for her business. Now her thrift is paying off for both of her and her husband, as he now gets her help in sustaining their family. The 50 year old mother of four is an ambitious entrepreneur who dreams of opening a wholesale in the future.

Maggie runs a good tuckshop business in Chitungwiza. She sells groceries and cosmetics. She opens up her tuck-shop as early as 5:30 a.m. daily and closes up around 9 p.m. She is very hands on in her shop as she does the restocking, merchandising and is also the sales person. She restocks weekly from wholesalers in Chitungwiza and Harare.

The group consists of 4 hardworking women who are keen to boost their various business projects which include groceries, flea-market, catering as well as second hand clothes selling.
