A loan helped to buy more farming inputs.


Sibongile's story

Sibongile is an 18-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her child and husband in the Wedza district in Zimbabwe. She runs her own farm, selling vegetables. Sibongile is requesting a Kiva loan to buy more farming inputs such as fertilizers, chemicals, and seeds. She plans to use the profit she earns to improve the family's financial support.

She will repay the ‘social interest’ on her loan by volunteering 2.5 hours per week as a Camfed Transition Guide, supporting other young women who are just entering Camfed’s alumnae organization, CAMA, by delivering an orientation course with weekly sessions on topics including health, financial literacy, and career guidance.
