Ellen's story

Ellen is an 18-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her parents in the Chikomba East district in Zimbabwe.

She runs her own clothing business where she sells second hand clothes for men, women and children.

Ellen is requesting a Kiva loan in order to increase the size and range of her stock.

She plans to use the profit she earns to meet the financial needs of her family.

Ellen will repay the ‘social interest’ on her loan by volunteering two and a half hours per week as a Camfed Learner Guide leading sessions in life skills and building personal confidence with students at her local secondary school.
