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


A loan helped to buy more dried fish and vegetables in bulk, support her family and help other disadvantaged people in her community.


Linda's story

Linda is a 21-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her mother in the Mulanje district in Malawi. Her mother is a subsistence farmer for a living and Linda supports her mother with her small business.

Linda sells dried fish and vegetables in a nearby market. She is requesting a Kiva loan to buy more dried fish and vegetables in bulk.

She plans to use the profit she earns to invest back into her business, support her family and help other disadvantaged people in her community. Linda will repay the "social interest" on her loan by volunteering two and a half hours per week as a member of the CAMFED Alumnae Association, CAMA, providing mentorship to younger members as they tackle a range of personal and entrepreneurial issues.
