Judith's story

Judith is a 23-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her parents in the Chikwawa District in Malawi. She supports her parents in the day to day living from the little she gets from her shop business, which she started using the grants she received some time back.

Judith has a small shop where she sells assorted items. She is requesting a Kiva loan to boost her business by expanding it. She plans to use the profit she earns to support her family and save cash to get back to school.

Judith will repay the ‘social interest’ on her loan by volunteering 2.5 hours per week as a Camfed Learner Guide, following up on students who are at risk of dropping out of school, to find out why they are missing school and to link them with the help they need to stay in school.
