Everlyn's story

Everlyn is a 34-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her mother and one child in Samfya district in Zambia. She received a Kiva loan before and she repaid it. Everlyn sells groundnuts and maize grain in the community. With her first Kiva loan, Everlyn purchased more stock to subsequently increase her sales. She used the profits she earned to expand her business capital. Everlyn is now requesting a loan in order to purchase more stock to increase her sales. She plans to use the profit she earns to continue to expand her business, and support her family and vulnerable people in the community. Everlyn will repay the ‘social interest’ on her second loan by volunteering three 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 children’s self-esteem and motivating them to remain in school.
