Additional Information

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.
