Lwiza's story

Lwiza is a 29-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her husband and two children in the Luwingu District in Zambia. Lwiza owns a grocery shop.

Lwiza is requesting a Kiva loan to expand her business by buying sugar, biscuits, and cooking oil. She plans to use the profits she earns to contribute to the general welfare of her home.

Lwiza will repay the ‘social interest’ on her loan by volunteering three hours per week as a Health Activist, delivering health-related programs in her local community, which cover topics such as sanitation, infant care, and HIV/AIDS.
