A loan of $1,600 helped a member to buy clothes, shoes and blankets to sell.


Coming Up Group's story

Greater operates from a flea-market in Zvishavane. She has been in business for seven years. She has one employee and her daily sales range between $50 and $70. She is 34, married and has 3 children a 14-year-old, a 3-year-old and a 3-month-old toddler. She lives in her own home in Zvishavane. Greater was granted a loan of $400 which she used to buy clothes, shoes and blankets to resell at the flea market. The challenge she has is that of seasonal fluctuations of sales, high competition and high transport costs. However, she sees herself operating a retail shop in the next five years. This will enable her to purchase goods for her home and improve standards of living for her and the family at large.
