Strive Ahead Group's story

Sithembiso is a 36 year old mother of 4. She is a married tenant and her husband is currently unemployed. She is in the business of knitting and selling jerseys.
She is a member of the Strive Ahead group; the group has been borrowing from Thrive for the past year. Sithembiso and Sharon are the remaining members as others have fallen away, their determination has ensured that they continue to strive ahead. Even though Sithembiso lost about $1000 to thieves in the last year, she has proudly repaid her loan as per reschedule.
A loan to this group will enable Sithembiso to knit enough jerseys to meet her demand as the winter season is just starting. Owing to climate change winters are getting colder in Zimbabwe and good business prospects await her.

In this group: Sithembiso, Sharon
