Mutinta's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to expand her business by buying doormats in bulk for resale.

Mutinta's story

Mutinta is a 19-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her mother in the Isoka District of Zambia. She sells second-hand doormats.

Mutinta is requesting a Kiva loan that she will use to expand her doormat business by buying doormats in bulk to sell. She plans to use the profits she earns to re-invest in her business and support her family’s basic needs. Mutinta 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 children’s self-esteem and motivating them to remain in school.
