Tariro
Tariro is a 29-year-old mother from the Chiredzi District of Zimbabwe. As a volunteer Camfed Learner Guide, she helps young students develop life skills. As a businesswoman, Tariro sells chickens to the community. Over the past year she has grown her poultry business to its current capacity – producing about 50 broiler birds every six weeks. Tariro started the business because she wanted to be financially independent. Tariro would like to increase her sales volume and become a supplier to major supermarkets. She will use a Kiva loan to purchase more broiler chicks and chick feed to increase production. Tariro hopes to provide for herself and remain financially independent. She also desires to advance her 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.

Kiva lenders’ funds are used to link women living in rural Zimbabwe to the capital they need to expand their businesses, support their families and contribute to their communities.
