A loan helped to restock more groceries and increase her flock of chickens.

Rudo Rwechokwadi Group's story

Residing on a farm in Goromonzi is 31-year-old woman named Faith who works tirelessly for the improvement and betterment of her family.

She has many years running a good poultry business, rearing broilers at her nicely built fowl run that has a capacity of accommodating close to 200 broilers at her home. She sells to canteens and butcheries in Goromonzi. She usually keeps batches of 100 birds. She has been facing challenges of meeting the market demand of her customers as her market base for the birds has been constantly increasing.

Faith is married and her husband works in South Africa. She works hard all day to support her two children who are still going to school. Apart from keeping broilers she also has a market stall where she sells a variety of commodities ranging from groceries to fruits and vegetables.

She usually gets daily sales of $50 and due to the pressure of managing both businesses she has one employee. Faith formed a group together with her three friends. They named their group Rudo Rwechokwadi, which means true love, and approached Thrive Microfinance for a loan. Faith used her share to restock groceries and increase her flock of chickens.
