A loan helped to expand her business by buying hair creams, wigs, and hair dryers for her salon.


Charity's story

Charity is a 27-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her husband and child in the Luwingu District in Zambia. Charity runs a hair salon business and sells wigs.


Charity is requesting a Kiva loan to expand her business by buying hair creams, wigs, and hair dryers for her salon. She plans to use the profit she earns to support her home with basic needs and to save for her education.


Charity will repay the ‘social interest’ on her loan by volunteering three hours per week as a CAMFED Transition Guide. This consists of supporting other young women who are just entering CAMFED’s alumnae organization, CAMA, by delivering an orientation course with weekly sessions on topics including health, financial literacy, and career guidance.
