Shamim's story

Shamim is a 28-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her husband in the Mangochi district in Malawi. She sells tomatoes.

Shamim is requesting a Kiva loan to include legumes in her business. She plans to use the profit she earns to support her family and those in need in her community. Shamim will repay the social interest on her loan by volunteering two and a half hours per week as a member of the CAMFED Association, following up on students who are at risk of dropping out of school, finding out why they are missing school and linking them with the help they need to stay in school.
