Qinnton Group's story

Life on the road has become a very common thing for Emily, as she is a cross-border trader who is always moving to and from Zimbabwe and Zambia. She is a 29-year-old lady who is married and has three children. Her husband works for a weaving company.

Initially she thought that since she was expecting a baby, she wasn’t going to be able to cross borders as she used to, but her energy proved her wrong. Her passport crossings to Zambia in this year of 2017 have been monthly. Her baby is three months old now and it has been business as usual.

She specializes in buying java materials in Zambia and selling them in Zvishavane, as well as in her neighbourhood. Her target each month is to sell 70 pieces of java material and recover her money for the next trip within four weeks. In this way she maintains and keeps the business running smoothly and also profitably.

Of late she has realized that there is a high demand for the java material. Hence she approached Thrive for the third time with her friend. Emily got a loan of $1,000 to restock over 100 javas to maintain a buffer stock that satisfies all her old and new customers.
