Rufaro's story

Rufaro is a 24-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her 3 children and husband in the Chikomba West in Zimbabwe. She buys and sells grocery. Rufaro is now requesting a Kiva loan in order to increase the size and range of her stock. She plans to use the profit she earns to look after herself and meet her family's needs. Rufaro will repay the ‘social interest’ on her loan by volunteering 2.5 hours per week as a Loan Coordinator, using her expertise to mentor and support fellow CAMA borrowers in her community to complete repayment of their loans. As a Loan Coordinator she has already successfully paid off at least one loan herself, so she understands the opportunities and challenges, and is uniquely positioned to help other CAMA members succeed.
