Early Women Group's story

Lydia is an entrepreneur aged 45. She runs a well-stocked tuck-shop in Harare selling a variety of groceries. She restocks some of her stuff from local manufacturers and some from South Africa. She is a married homeowner with 2 school going children. With the motive to grow her business, she joined with other women in her community area and formed the Early Women group, which consists of four members. They attended a training program at Thrives offices with other members of the group and she learned about important issues of group guarantee and savings. She values her family and aims to do the best for them; therefore, she wants to increase her profits. She is currently on her first loan and used it to buy more stock for the tuck-shop. She is hoping that her sales will increase and her future plan is to expand her business into a grocery shop.
