Tashia Group's story

Nyarai is a member of the Tashia Women’s group. She is a married mother of four. Nyarai is in the business of producing peanut butter to sell. She started her business in 2000. The major challenge that she faced was the lack of space to operate freely, as her business requires higher levels of hygiene. She also had no machinery to produce enough peanut butter to meet her customers’ needs. Nyarai and her group members have been receiving financial assistance from Thrive since January 2013. She now operates from a well-spaced shop, and has three peanut butter making machines. Nyarai is now able to produce at least 100 liters of peanut butter per week. She is now a constant supplier to the surrounding shops and schools. She notes that the reason her business has grown so much is because of the lessons she received from Thrive. Nyarai now knows how to budget, save, and make daily records of all her business transactions. Now that she is getting her fourth loan from Thrive, she hopes to buy a motor vehicle for more efficiency.
