Essy Group's story

Beauty is a married mother of five children, all of whom are going to school.

She sells kitchen ware and other small products from her home in Southlea Park, Harare. Beauty mainly restocks from South Africa and Harare, and usually trades in kitchenware, detergents, weaves, and bicycle pumps. She has been in this business for more than eight years. In that time she has gained experience in pleasing her customers.

Beauty is a member of the Essy group which is composed of three members, and is based in Southlea Park, Harare.

Beauty used her share of the loan to restock 30 plastic bins, 20 bowls, 25 spice racks, and 20 washing baskets. Her husband supports her and helps her with restocking since he is based in South Africa.

The members of the Essy group support and motivate each other. Beauty was empowered and now she is confident that she is going to be a successful business woman. The other group members operate poultry and clothing businesses.
