Kache Group's story

Serina lives in Marondera. She regularly crosses to South Africa, bringing back clothes and shoes for sale in her local area. Serina started the business 10 years ago and it has developed into a source that is bringing her reliable income. From her cross-border trading, Serina was able to buy a jersey knitting machine which is helping her to contribute to her daily necessities in her house. Serina is living alone; she is widow and her two children were able to complete school through the profits from her business.

Serina goes to South Africa once every month bringing items to order and others that she sells to flea market operators. She also knits jerseys for different schools and sells them to different locations, and she goes to rural areas once every month as a way to be able to meet all her life obligations.

Serina learned about how Thrive helped her neighbors who are into different businesses and she never hesitated to form a group of four women with her friends so that they can apply for a loan. Serina and her friends named their group Kache and they attended record-keeping training at Thrive. Serina used her loan to restock wool for her jerseys.
