Ashlely's story

Ashley is a young, 24-year-old woman, married and living in Chikomba West District. She is a CAMA member actively involved in empowering school leaders to reinvest into the community by carrying out health and education campaigns. She operates a small retail shop in her community where she sells a variety of grocery products such as soap, eggs, sugar, flour, milk, juice, and salt. The store is conveniently located since it is the only one in the vicinity. She started the business in 2012 when her husband lost his job and figured that she needed to do something and not wait for poverty to take toll.

The Kiva loan will enable her to expand her business by increasing her stock and raise her sales. She sees herself being the leading supplier of grocery products in her village and also hopes to create employment in her community and improve her family’s living standards.
