Marbel's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to boost her business by improving the infrastructure of her stall.


Marbel's story

Marbel is a 38-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her parents in the Buhera district in Zimbabwe. She runs her own grocery shop.

With her first Kiva loan, Marbel increased the size and range of her stock and paid rentals for her stall. She used the profit she earned to support her young sister with school fees and buy basics for her family.

Marbel is now requesting another loan to boost her business by improving the infrastructure of her stall.

She plans to use the profit she earns to further her education and build her own shop.

She will repay the ‘social interest’ on her loan by volunteering 4 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.
