Affience's story

Affience is a 30-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her young sisters and brothers in the Binga district of Zimbabwe. She is requesting a Kiva loan in order to start her own grocery business. Affience plans to use the profit she earns to support her young sisters and brothers. She will repay the "social interest" on her loan by volunteering four hours per week as a Camfed 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.
