Kashweka's story

Kashweka is a 24-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her husband and two children in Sioma District in Zambia.

Kashweka sells second-hand clothes for women, men, and children. Kashweka is requesting a Kiva loan to expand her business by purchasing more garments to diversify and increase her stock.

She plans to use the profit she earns to re-invest in her business and provide basic needs at home.

Kashweka will repay the ‘social interest’ on her loan by volunteering 3 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
