Precious's story

Precious is a 31-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her sister and three children in the Isoka district in Zambia. Precious operates a business selling potatoes.

Precious is requesting a Kiva loan to expand her business by purchasing more bags of potatoes in order to consistently meet her customer’s demands. She plans to use the profit she earns to provide food for her family and pay her children's school fees.

Precious will repay the ‘social interest’ on her loan by volunteering three hours per week as a CAMFED Business Mentor. In this role, she will lead sessions to teach less experienced local women how to become successful entrepreneurs by developing their business acumen and sharing the lessons she learned from operating her business.
