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

A loan helped to expand her business by buying more groceries for her shop.

Ronice's story

Ronice is a 35-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her husband and 1 child in the Mafinga District of Zambia.

She runs a grocery shop. She also spends her time training a number of girls in her community on how to save and make personal budgets.

Ronice is requesting a Kiva loan to expand her business by buying more groceries for her shop. She plans to use the profit she earns to support her home with basic needs and to support three orphans in her community with school supplies and fees.

Ronice will repay the ‘social interest’ on her loan by volunteering three hours per week as a Financial Education Guide, delivering a Financial Education Course to a group of young women.
