A loan of $1,000 helped a member to buy clothes, shoes and household items for sale.

Kuwadzana Group's story

Constance and her friend, Nyarai live in Highfields, Harare in Zimbabwe. The two are the remaining members of the Kuwadzana group. Constance is seated on the right side. She is a cross border trader who travels to South Africa, Botswana and Zambia buying new and second hand clothes for resale. She has gone through the training offered at Thrive and has benefitted from it as she now keeps good records that enable her to make informed business decisions.
Constance and her friend need a loan of $1,000 in order to boost their businesses and increase their profit margins. Her husband is an unskilled carpenter who gets jobs sporadically so he does not have a regular source of income. The money that Constance makes from her cross border trading helps with the family’s livelihood and it would be a great help if she got this loan from Kiva.

In this group: Constance, Nyarai
