Rtt Group's story

When the going got tough, Mafunasi picked herself up and faced reality with determination. She is aged 40 years and has four children, of which three are schoolgoing. Her husband is currently unemployed. She resides in Bindura.

When her husband became unemployed, it took her time to adjust to the new life that they had to live. Things at some point got so tough that she had to ask for help from her relatives. It was only this one day that she made a decision to get back on her feet and take control of her life. She was given capital by her family members, and she started selling groceries, mainly basic commodities. She built a wooded structure which she still uses for displaying her products. Weekly she restocks from a nearby wholesaler with at least $100.

This business has sustained her family for the past three years now. To further increase her capital, she applied for a second loan. She used it to restock groceries in bulk so that she can enjoy the economies of scale and avoid out-of-stock situations.
