Gulliver’s success story
Meet 39-year-old Gulliver Sango a member of the Mukushinga Self Help Group in Ward 10 Shurugwi District.
Sango beat the odds when he joined Handinhand Zimbabwe in January this year. The father of two has managed to open two butcheries and a supermarket in the district through his poultry business.
Sango says after going through business training courtesy of Hand in Hand Zimbabwe; his poultry business greatly expanded. He now sells at-least 150 chickens valued at $25 each after every three weeks.
From his profit, he has also managed to buy a residential stand and has been empowered to take his children to decent schools.
“Hand in Hand Zimbabwe has greatly changed my life, I never thought I would be a successful businessman but here I am. Hand in Hand Zimbabwe has equipped me with knowledge which I am now implementing in running my businesses,” he said.
Sango has also employed three people at his butcheries and supermarket and he hopes to employ more in the near future.
Sango’s successful story represents one of the 40 000 livelihoods improved by Hand in Hand Zimbabwe.
