Loveness's story

Loveness is a 41-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her husband in the Isoka district of Zambia. Loveness sells rice. Loveness is requesting a Kiva loan to promote and expand her business by buying more bags of rice to meet the demands of her customers. She plans to use the profit she earns to sustain her living.

Loveness will repay the ‘social interest’ on her loan by volunteering three hours per week as a CAMFED Association 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.
