Tionge's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy more grocery items.
Tionge is a 23-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her grandparents in the Mzimba district in Malawi. She lost both her parents at a young age and is the primary provider for her family. Tionge operates a grocery shop where she sells assorted goods. She is requesting a Kiva loan to buy more grocery items. She plans to use the profit she earns to support her family’s basic needs. She will repay the 'social interest' on her loan by volunteering two and a half hours per week as a CAMFED Transition Guide, supporting other young women who are just entering the CAMFED Association. She will deliver weekly sessions on topics including health and financial literacy, as well as providing career guidance.
