Powerful Ladies Group's story

Powerful ladies is a group of three ladies, who do not fit the dictionary meaning of powerful from a mere look at them, but obviously are powerful if one is careful to listen to their beautiful story. From their photo the ladies look committed and serious, perhaps the best symptom of powerful from our natural human instincts.

Powerful ladies group is a group that has almost a two year relationship with Thrive. In fact this has been a healthy relationship that has seen them grow continuously. Constance operates a tuck shop in Chitungwiza, where she has got a new stand. She was formerly a seller of clothing bales but she changed her trade after the market became very competitive as she came up against the biggest competitors who were specialising in the same trade. Constance is now happy in her tuck shop business, in which she is able to maintain her Daily Record Sheet - the method she learnt during her training with Thrive.

Constance wants to thank Thrive for the lessons because she was able to switch into a new business without hassle. She thanks Thrive again for the financial support, she hopes the relationship will remain, to grow her business into a big one. She is happier for being encouraged to work in a group.

In this group: Constance, Marcia, Christine
