A loan helped a member to use her amount to buy winter wear that includes blankets, tracksuits, satchels and more other clothes for selling.

Takomborerwa Group's story

Makanyara has a cross border business to South Africa and Mozambique where she restocks new and second-hand clothes. Among her cross-border products, she restocks fleece and African attire material, track suits and satchels.

Makanyara is a thirty-six year old married mother who is blessed with five children. Four of her children are still in school. Her husband is a carpenter in South Africa. Makanyara sometimes sends her husband to restock for her since he works in one of her restocking destinations. Cross border business has become a pillar source of income for Makanyara. She restocks her products cheaply getting almost forty percent return. Her business has helped her pay school fees for her children and household upkeep though she longs for growing it and for daily increase in business value.

Makanyara approached Thrive in a bid to increase her capital. She joined hands with three neighbor friends to form Takomborerwa group, a vernacular word that means “we are blessed”. The group is based in Hatcliffe, Harare. Makanyara used her loan to buy winter wear that includes blankets, tracksuits, satchels and other clothes for selling.
