Judith's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to expand her poultry business by purchasing more chicks and feed.

Judith's story

Judith is a 30-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her two children and husband in Hurungwe District, Zimbabwe. She runs a poultry business raising free-range chickens and broiler chickens. With her first Kiva loan, Judith expanded her farming project which led her to start the poultry business. She used the profit she earned to pay for her children’s education and also supported vulnerable children in her community.

Judith is now requesting a second loan to expand her poultry business by purchasing more chicks and feed. She plans to use the profit she earns to retake the classes she failed in high school and to raise the standard of living for her family.

Judith will repay the ‘social interest’ on her second loan by volunteering two and a half hours weekly as a Learner/Transition Guide. As a Learner/Transition Guide, she will lead life skills sessions with students at her local secondary school, covering topics on active citizenship and personal confidence. She will also work with members of the Camfed Alumnae Association (CAMA), who have just completed secondary school, to assist them in acquiring skills which will enable them to transition safely into adulthood.
