Plats Group's story

Plaxedes is a member of Plats group with her neighbor Stella. She is married and stays with her family in Kuwadzana, Harare.

She runs a tailoring business from home. Since her husband retired, her business is now their main source of income. She also raises and sells chickens. She restocks her tailoring material from Harare. She makes clothes, skirts, seat covers, and church uniforms. She sells her products to neighboring locations.

Sometimes she goes to rural areas and exchanges clothes for maize and other farm produce. She will then sell the farm products back in Harare. She has been in this business for 10 years.

Now that she wants to maximize on the capacity that she has to expand her business, she has taken another loan to restock clothes as well as increasing her chickens.
