Zhomba Group's story

Mary is a single parent aged 37. She has 2 children aged 12 and 4 years. She lives in Gokwe Nembudziya. She also looks after three children who are related to her and who are orphans. All of them go to school.

Mary operates a general dealer in Gokwe North and has been doing business since 1998. She has one employee and her daily sales range from $70 to $100. Mary used the loan to purchase 100 crates of soft drinks, bread, 5 cartons of sugar and mealie-meal. She also farms cotton and maize which increases her income when she sells after harvest.

The main challenge she faces is that of transport to carry stock from wholesalers to the retail shop. She sees herself diversifying her products and owning her own trucks for delivery purposes. That way her children and other dependents will be able to go to better schools and also their standard of living will improve.
