A loan helped to buy her vegetable seeds and chicken feed.

Ritta Group's story

Takesure is a passionate lady, age 54, residing in Lochnivar a suburb of Harare. She is married and her husband is unemployed.

Takesure has a poultry business and does vegetable gardening. She keeps batches of 200 chickens which she sells locally to her customers and at times supplies to butcheries in town and local restaurants. She has been able to grow her business as she only started off keeping a batch of 50.

Driven by the desire of more profits, she started vegetable farming as way of supplementing her poultry business. With need of more financial assistance, Takesure approached Thrive Microfinance for a further loan.

Takesure got a loan which she used to buy her vegetable seeds and chicken feeds. In the long run, Takesure is planning to build another fowl run.
