Precious's story

Precious is a 24-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her husband and three children in the Mungwi district in Zambia. She sells assorted groceries and chitenge (traditional cloth) material.

Precious is requesting a Kiva loan to expand her business by increasing the size and range of her stock to meet her customers' needs. She plans to use the profit she earns to help support her family.

Precious will repay the ‘social interest’ on her loan by volunteering three hours per week as a member of the CAMFED Association, the network of young women who were supported by CAMFED to complete school. In her volunteer role, she will provide mentorship to other CAMFED Association members as they tackle a range of personal and entrepreneurial issues.
