Tadala Group needed £1779.41 for their business.
Leah is a 62 year old woman who resides in Kuwadzana 3 in Harare. She is an industrious woman who strives to provide food for her family. She is involved in the businesses of buying and selling clothes as well as raising and selling broiler chickens. Before coming to Thrive Microfinance she used to focus mainly on raising and selling broilers. Selling clothes used to be a part time business. Leah testifies that the first loan of $500 she received from Thrive was very helpful and from the profits she generated she managed to buy a new bed. Leah is married; her husband is unemployed and helps her in running her business. She has 5 children who are now married with their own families. She takes care of two of her grandchildren who are still going to school.
Leah and 3 other women formed a group and named it Tadala. Although the Zimbabwean economy has not been favourable throughout the year, this has not been much of an impediment to these women’s businesses as they successfully completed repaying their previous loan. The group has applied for a second loan of $2200 so as to grow their businesses. Leah is using her portion of $600 to buy clothes to meet the demand of the upcoming festive season.
