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


A loan helped to restock a variety of kitchenware and women's clothes to sell.


Chihera Group's story

Epiphania, 38, started her kitchenware business a few years ago operating on a small scale; she recently opened a new small shop. Epiphania goes and restocks a variety of kitchen items two or three times every month from neighboring countries such as South Africa and Zambia so she can keep a buffer stock that does not run out.

It is now the fifth time that Epiphania has applied for a loan from Thrive Microfinance. The new loan is to restock a variety of kitchenware and women's clothes to sell. She also plans to open another small shop with the loan. The loan thus may also help improve her profit position and living standard, as disposable income would also increase.

Epiphania survives with three children, all of whom are still in school; her husband works in South Africa.
