Samantha's story

Samantha is a 17-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her mother in the Guruve district in Zimbabwe. She is requesting a Kiva loan to start her own cosmetics and jewelry market stall. She plans to use the profit she earns to support her family, meet personal needs, and do philanthropy in her community.

She will repay the ‘social interest’ on her loan by volunteering 2.5 hours weekly as a Camfed Loan Coordinator at her local high school, facilitating financial literacy, business, and savings modules to fellow CAMA borrowers, helping them understand and pay back their loans.
