Letticia
Letticia is 35 years old and married. She lives in the district of Wedza in Zimbabwe. For two years she has been engaged in market gardening, providing a wide range and steady supply of fresh produce such as vegetables, tomatoes, carrots and onions throughout the local growing season.

Letticia plans to use a loan to purchase a water pump, irrigation pipes and fertilizer to increase production on her land. Her hope is to expand the business and become a wholesale provider of fruits and vegetables. This will enable her to not only provide for her family’s basic needs, but also to pay for her children’s education.

More information about this loan


Young women who live and work in the most impoverished, rural districts of Zimbabwe have very limited income, lack collateral and cannot access loans at affordable rates
 

Camfed's borrowers are young women who live and work in these remote rural areas and belong to the Cama network (the association of Camfed alumni). Most Cama borrowers will have received money management and business training through Camfed’s programs for young women who have completed high school. Borrowers will repay interest upon their loans as a "social interest" - through their volunteer efforts to enhance the quality of the education provided by their local schools.
 

Borrowers commit to contribute a minimum of 2.5 hours per week as volunteers. As Learner Guides, they will lead students through a new wellbeing curriculum that helps develop students’ skills and capacities for decision-making, problem solving, leadership, entrepreneurship, resilience, communication, and empathy.
