A loan helped to improve her snack business.


Ashura's story

Ashura is 27 years old. Currently she is living with her mother and her two children in Iringa district located in Tanzania.

She sells snacks and she is volunteering as a CAMFED Learner Guide giving time each week to mentor young students at her local school.

Her first Kiva loan Ashura used to expand her business. Ashura is now requesting a second Kiva loan in order to improve her snack business. She plans to use the profit she earns to expand her business and cater for her basic needs.

Ashura will repay the ‘social interest’ on her second loan by volunteering 2.5 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 the children’s self-esteem and motivating them to remain in school
