Rumbidzai's story

Rumbidzai is a 34-year-old Mozambican woman. She lives with her husband and their lovely children.

Rumbidzai is a well known producer in her community. She helps a lot of smallholder farmers to get inputs on a credit basis, allowing them to pay back after the harvesting process. Rumbidzai also produces veggies such as cabbage, lettuce, onions and tomatoes.

Besides the agricultural activity, Rumbidzai coordinates three saving and loans groups in her community. Thanks to this activity, she gained enough skills in finance education and business management.

In 2018, Rumbidzai requested her first Kiva loan, which allowed her to grow in her business. In 2020, Rumbidzai requested another Kiva loan, which was a prepaid loan. Considering the upcoming agricultural season, Rumbidzai foresses an increase in demand for her products, so she will need more inputs to supply to her clients. This is why she is requesting her third Kiva loan to buy more inputs to be sold to local farmers in her community in order to increase her family income.
