Maria's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to procure two bicycles that she will rent out.

Maria's story

Maria is a 25-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her parents in the Chikwawa district in Malawi. She sells farm produce such as dry corn, beans, and rice. A unique thing about her is she enjoys helping vulnerable girls in her community. She is requesting a Kiva loan to buy two bicycles that can be rented out for local transportation. She plans to invest the profits she earns from her bicycle transportation business into growing her farm produce business.

She will repay the 'social interest' on her loan by volunteering 2.5 hours per week as a CAMFED Learner Guide, where she will encourage local students to remain in school, and support them when needed.
