A loan of $2,400 helped a member to extend her fowl run so that she can raise more chickens.


Nyashadzamwari Group's story

Before she engaged herself in buying and selling, Axillia used to live a beautiful life until her husband left her for another woman. She started off by selling tomatoes for very little profit. After sometime, her son, who had previously gone with the husband, came to see her and gave her $50 which then helped her to start her poultry business. From there, her business started to improve. She also got a passport and started getting clothes and shoes from South Africa to sell.

Her friends encouraged her to attend business training offered at Thrive and this training has helped her to keep money in the business. Axillia is a 58 year old hard working women who stays in Budiriro, Harare. Since realizing that her poultry business is viable and profitable, she is confident that a Kiva loan can help her build a bigger fowl run as so far, she has used a small room indoors for keeping the chickens.
