Nyatsime Strikers Group's story

Miriam, aged 40, runs a tuck-shop at her home. The tuck-shop has grown popular in her area for her service, as she has been running this project for over 6 years now. This trade has served as a stable additional income for her family and placed her in a position to assist her low income earning spouse, who is a self-employed painter, to meet the daily needs of the family and even serve as a source of financial provision for the educational needs of her 3 school-going children.

In pursuit of additional capital to finance her business, Miriam came to Thrive Microfinance for a loan. She also acquired stress management training as part of her package from Thrive Microfinance during her fifth loan procedure, which she attests has greatly aided her to cope with the economic transition in Zimbabwe and its impact on her families and business. Miriam received her loan, which she used to restock basic commodities such as sugar, cooking oil in bulk and other groceries for her tuck-shop. She hopes it will result in increased profits and business growth as she dreams of eventually renting out an actual store of her own as an investment for her family’s future.
