A loan helped to buy more groceries.

Readous's story

Readous is a 24-year-old grocery saleswoman, and volunteer Camfed Learner Guide, living with her husband in the Mt Darwin district. Her work involves buying groceries from wholesalers and selling them to customers from her shop.

She also volunteers as a Camfed Learner Guide, leading life skills sessions with her students in the nearby high school. She focuses on effective communication and on building her students’ confidence.

She is now requesting a Kiva loan in order to buy more groceries from cheap wholesalers. Readous plans to use the profit she earns to support her family’s daily living costs. The interest on her “social-interest” loan will be repaid through Readous' weekly two and a half hours of volunteering, which are so valuable for Camfed’s younger students.
