A loan of $3,200 helps a member to restock groceries.


Musha Mukadzi Group's story

“I am a testimony on how small loans can change a person’s life, when I joined Thrive in July 2013, I had no idea how I was going to pay school fees for my son who was studying finance at a local college, I had no idea how I was going to put food on the table for my family as my husband was unemployed during that time, but it’s all now history as my son graduated in 2016 and this was made possible because of the loans I have been receiving from Thrive,” these were the words of Anna when she was asked how she has benefited from the previous loans she received from Thrive by a Thrive officer.

She is a married mother of 3, and her husband is now working for the city council. She now owns two tuckshops where she sell groceries. When she joined Thrive she was specialising in a poultry business but because of the loans, she changed to running a tuckshop which is more profitable. The group is now left with only 2 members. She used her loan to restock her two tuckshops.

Anna and her other group members appreciate the previous loans they received from Thrive and wish to maintain this good relationship with Thrive and its partners so as to benefit more from the program.
