Thrive’s mission is to provide training and credit to women excluded from the mainstream financial sector in a manner that is both socially responsible and financially sustainable. Thrive is not a charity – It is run for profit with all surpluses retained in the business for the benefit of its borrowers. Thrive has a pro-poor focus and limits the initial loan to $500. There is no lower limit. We do not provide salary based loans. Our borrowers run small business such as tuck-shops or chicken farms or work as cross-border traders or stallholders.
