First lady officially opens ChirumanzuZibagwe women’s shop
The first lady Amai Auxilia Mnangagwa yesterday officially opened the ChirumanzuZibagwe women’s shop in Mvuma.
A total of thirty families are directly benefiting from the project.
The women’s shop which was the first lady’s brain child when she was the national assembly member for ChirumanzuZibagwe before she left to concentrate on her new role as the first lady is proving to be a blessing for the Mvuma community as some of the basic goods in the shops are pegged at almost half the price as compared to prices in other shops.
Some of the beneficiaries off the project said their lives have been transformed for better ever since they started operationswith reports indicating that ten members of the scheme have since graduated to open their own shops in the mining town.
Whilst opening the event, Amai Mnangagwa applauded the Chirumanzu community for keeping the project alive, adding that this could only be achieved by united efforts.
The ChirumanzuZibagwe women’s club is also into other projects which include dress making, cattle and goat rearing, with reports indicating that they have since acquired land from the local council for property development as they seek to expand their line of business.
