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

A loan helped to restock more kitchenware products and buy chairs for her preschool.

Anatoth Group's story

Starting a business at a newly established location is always a challenge, as one must grow a customer base before being stable in the business. Faith had to go through this before establishing her business.

In 2016, with two other ladies from her area, Faith formed a group named Anatoth Blue and joined Thrive. At first, Faith specialised in a kitchenware business, which she restocked locally, but she managed to expand her business as she opened a pre-school in her area.

Currently, Faith is running the two businesses concurrently and is planning to open another shop for selling her kitchenware at a nearby shopping centre. Faith decided to approach Thrive for another loan with her other group member. Faith used her share of the loan to restock kitchenware products and to buy chairs for her preschool.

Faith is a married mother, aged 39, currently with five dependants, all residing in Sally Mugabe Heights, a suburb located in the peripheries of Harare. Faith's husband works in South Africa as a truck driver.
