A loan helped to restock more clothes and cobra.

Juniors Purple Group's story

Emily is a lady who lives in the village of Ruware about 24 kilometres from Marondera. Emily is coming to Thrive for the second time. She makes and sells cobra (floor polish). She also sells clothes and fresh chips. Emily has been in the business for the past four years and she is thankful of the support from Thrive which helped her to boost her business operations. She usually sells her products in her village of Ruware.

Emily is 22 years old and a mother of three children. Two of her children are still school-going. Emily’s husband is a farmer in their village who grows horticultural products. The group got a loan recently and Emily used her share to restock more clothes and cobra to sell in her area. She was grateful to get a second loan from Thrive and was happy to attend a refresher training on business management, a training that she believes will improve her business operations.
