Reigning Queens Group's story

With the hope of advancing her business, Betha joined Thrive Microfinance in order to acquire a loan. She received her first loan and repaid it well. The loan also boosted Bertha’s business more than she anticipated. However, she faced serious emotional and financial challenges when her child was hit by a car and died on the spot. This devastating death affected her emotionally and financially paralyzed her business, as she used a lot of the money towards covering the funeral expenses.

With the help from her friends, Bertha managed to rise again to resume her business step-by-step. She decided to apply for another loan in order to boost her business. Bertha received her portion, and she managed to restock clothes and shoes from Zambia, targeting the coming tobacco selling season which has a high demand of goods.
