Mary's story

Mary is a 20-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her grandparents in the Kasama district of Zambia. She is a poultry farmer. Mary is requesting a Kiva loan to expand her business by buying more chicken feed, chicks and feeders in order to meet her customers’ needs. She plans to use the profit she earns to help with her family's basic needs.

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