Cynthia's story

Cynthia is a 27-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her mother in Chienge district in Zambia.

She owns a tailoring shop. With her first Kiva loan, Cynthia replenished her inventory which increased her sales, and now her business is thriving. She is requesting a second loan to expand her business by purchasing more items to meet her customers' needs. She plans to use the profit she earns to support her family and others in her community.

Cynthia will repay the ‘social interest’ on her second loan by volunteering three hours per week as a Financial Education Guide, supporting other young women in her community by teaching them about financial literacy and best practices for setting up a business.
