The important junction at Mberengwa’s Mbuya Nehanda is an important gateway to different places and there, enterprising women have nurtured a trading place.

The railway line is an important national trade asset.

It goes to places such as Chiredzi, Chikwalakwala and beyond.

There is also a road which links Mberengwa, Mataga and Zvishavane.

This strategic place at Mbuya Nehanda encouraged women to converge here and start selling wares.

The train passes through here twice a week and the women could not miss such an opportunity.

The idea is to send reliant by creating opportunities even locally, said a mother who confesses to having raised her family by conducting business at the junction.

The biggest lesson one could certainly pick up from these enterprising women is the creation of opportunities right at one’s doorstep.

In their own way, this is a market these women treasure.
