Jane's story

Jane is a 39 year old businessperson who runs a bottle store in Mbare. She gets her stock from local suppliers nearby and sometimes from South Africa. She lives in Damofalls with her husband and three school going children.

Jane discovered about Thrive microfinance and opted for a business loan. She went through an informative training process, which would enable her to make good decisions before borrowing. In addition, the group were trained on how to grow their projects through various non-financial aspects including good customer service.

She used the profits from her first loan to buy some plumbing pipes for her home. She is currently on her second loan and she used it to buy more beverages to meet the increasing demand. Jane is happy that her loan was beneficial to her as she saw her business grow within the last six months. Her clientele increased and she was successful in generating sales and hopes that her business will keep growing in the future.
