Grace's story

Grace is a 26-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her husband and two children in the Mulanje district in Malawi. She sells laundry soap. The business is struggling because the profits are mainly used for household consumption. Grace is requesting a Kiva loan to buy a variety of groceries, especially food items, to improve her business. She plans to use the profit she earns to take care of her family and expand her business. Grace will repay the ‘social interest’ on her loan by volunteering 2.5 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.
