Everlyn's story

Everlyn is a 32-year-old entrepreneur, who lives with her parents in Samfya district in Zambia. She sells beans, rice, and cassava meal. Everlyn is requesting a Kiva loan to expand her business by buying rice in bulk.

She plans to use the profit she earns to support her family’s basic needs at home. Everlyn will repay the ‘social interest’ on her loan by volunteering three hours per week as a Camfed Business Mentor, leading sessions to teach less experienced local women how to become successful entrepreneurs by developing their business acumen and sharing the lessons she learned from operating her business.
