Clean Ladies Group's story

Annie is a woman aged 44 who lives in Highfield. She is in the business of selling fruits, mainly avocados and bananas, at Mbare. She restocks her products from Honde Valley and Chipinge. Annie is a married mother of five children. One of Thrive Microfinance’s customers informed these ladies about Thrive Microfinance and she decided to take the chance to improve her business. Annie and her two friends decided to form a group which they named Clean Ladies. The group met the requirements and attended the training conducted by Thrive Microfinance. She says that her business is improving and it now requires more money so she used her previous loan to restock and the profits she generated from that loan were used to improve her household furniture and reinvested in her business. On the current loan which is the sixth loan, Annie used her share to add to her product range so as to entice new customers.
