Shingirirai's story

Shingirirai is a 22-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her parents in Gokwe North District, Zimbabwe. She is a seamstress. With her first Kiva loan, Shingirirai bought additional sewing material. She used the profits she earned to support her brother with school fees. Shingirirai is now requesting a second loan to expand her business to meet increased demand. She plans to use the profits she earns to purchase a commercial stand at a local market. Shingirirai will repay the ‘social interest’ on her second loan by volunteering 2.5 hours per week as a Camfed Learner Guide. As a Learner Guide she will lead life skills sessions at her local secondary school and provide counseling and support to students in need.
