Sharon's story

Sharon is an 18-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her parents in the Mansa district of Zambia. She runs a poultry business and also sells telephone airtime credit.

Sharon is requesting a Kiva loan to expand her poultry business by buying more chicken feed. She plans to use the profit she earns to help support her family’s basic needs and save for her tertiary education.

Sharon will repay the ‘social interest’ on her 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.
