Arsenal Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to add a batch of 200 broiler chickens to supply to local butcheries.

Arsenal Group's story

The words of Sabina (far right in the photo) come from the bottom of her heart, which is full of joy and gratitude after completing her first loan she that she received in February. Even in the turbulent business environment of Zimbabwe, she found Thrive Microfinance meeting her needs to grow her poultry rearing business.

Sabina is a 48-year-old woman. She is in the business of raising and selling broiler chickens and has been in this business for more than 10 years now. Her business is growing gradually, as she started by raising small batches of about 50 birds and her market was limited to her neighbors. Sabina is now able to raise batches of 200 birds and is supplying local butcheries in Harare where she stays.

Sabina is married and her husband is a self-employed builder. They have four small children who are all going to school.

Sabina and her four colleagues (Annah, Theresa, Linnah, and Roselyn) are members of the Arsenal Group. They received their first loan from Thrive in February. They repaid their previous loan, and they are now applying for a second loan. Sabina plans to add a batch of 200 broiler chickens to supply to local butcheries.
