Margaret's story

Margaret is a 24-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her sister in the Chienge district of Zambia. She sells tomatoes and vegetables at the market. Margaret is requesting a Kiva loan to expand her business. She plans to use the profit she earns to support her own and her family’s basic needs.

Margaret will repay the ‘social interest’ on her loan by volunteering three hours per week as a CAMFED business mentor, leading sessions to teach less-experienced local women how to become successful entrepreneurs by developing their business acumen and sharing the lessons she learned from operating her business.
