Mercy's story

Mercy is a 21-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her husband in the Mpika District of Zambia. Mercy is requesting a Kiva loan to expand her business of selling carrier bags by increasing her stock. She plans to use the profits she earns to pay for her examination fees.

Mercy will repay the social interest on her loan by volunteering three hours per week as a CAMFED Learner Guide, facilitating classes from CAMFED’s "My Better World" program with students at her local secondary school, helping to build their self-esteem and motivating them to remain in school.
