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

A loan helped to diversify her business by also selling fresh vegetables.

Veronica's story

Veronica is an entrepreneur who lives with her child and husband in the Kilosa district of Tanzania. She runs a small grocery shop. With her first Kiva loan, Veronica increased the size and range of her stock. She used the profit she earned to provide for her family.

Veronica is now requesting a loan to diversify her business by also selling fresh vegetables. She plans to use the profits she earns to continue to support her family and pay school fees for her child.

Veronica will repay the ‘social interest’ on her second loan by volunteering 2.5 hours weekly 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.
