A loan helped a member to buy more second hand clothes and shoes to supply to shops in town.


Richwell Group's story

Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destination. In the same year both her parents died in a tragic car accident and her husband left her for another woman. Although the year 2012 was hard for her, Ladywin showed great courage, hard work, and determination as she stood up for the wellbeing of her children.

Ladywin sells second hand clothes in her neighbourhood. As a mother who is taking care of 3 children on her own, she is always on the road travelling to and from Mozambique to buy and sell clothes and shoes. For the past four years, the 32-year-old Ladywin’s business has been doing so well that she is rarely at home. Some boutiques that sells second hand clothes are now asking her to supply them with clothes hence she is falling short of capital to meet her demand.

Ladywin got together with her three friends from the neighbourhood and formed the Richwell Ladies group. The women are all hard-working and they have different serious small businesses that have future potential growth. They attended all Thrive trainings and they testify that these trainings have helped them a lot in understanding their businesses better and increased their financial literacy. The group got a loan and Ladywin will use her portion to buy more second hand clothes and shoes to supply to shops in town.

In this group: Gloria, Ladywin, Angella
