Edwina's story

Edwina is a 36-year-old entrepreneur, who lives with her younger brother in the Kitwe District of Zambia. Edwina sells second-hand clothes. She is requesting a Kiva loan to expand her business by buying more clothes to resell. She plans to use the profit she earns to meet her daily needs at home and pay her brother’s school fees.

Edwina will repay the ‘social interest’ on her loan by volunteering three hours per week as a Sexual and Reproductive Health Guide, leading sessions on sexual and reproductive health, HIV prevention, gender and power dynamics, and personal choices at her local secondary school and in her community.
