but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy cheap stationery for her business.

Doris's story

Doris is 25 years old and currently lives with her husband and child in Kilombero district. She is volunteering as a Camfed Learner Guide. She gives time each week to mentor younger students and members through a range of personal issues.

Her work involves selling stationery with special space. She is requesting a Kiva loan in order to buy in bulk at a cheap price from a wholesaler. She plans to use the profits she will earn to expand her business and support her mother and her child's daily needs.

The social interest on her loan will be repaid through Doris's weekly two-and-a-half hours of volunteering.
