A loan helped to restock more vegetables and groceries for her business.

Bayes Group's story

Mutsa is 35 years old. She is a mother of three children. They all reside in Chiweshe. She believes that taking one step at a time will take her far. She started business three years ago, selling fruit and vegetables and now she is into grocery selling. She operates at a nearby shopping centre. Restocking is done once every week. Her husband has been helpful especially with restocking as she is also the shop attendant. Competition in this area is very high and she has managed to survive by keeping her prices within the reasonable limit that allows her to earn a profit. To be able to attract more customers, she needs to fill up every empty shelf in the shop. Hence, she received a loan which she used to restock a variety of groceries in bulk.

Her hope is to continually survive in business despite the challenges faced. She came to Thrive with her other two friends and formed a group of three named Bayes. Bayes got a loan recently and Mutsa used her portion to restock more vegetables and groceries for her business.
