Doreen's story

Doreen is a 19-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her parents in Mchinji district in Malawi. She sells second-hand clothes.

She is requesting a Kiva loan to open a tailoring shop. She plans to use the profit she earns to learn how to sew very well, so that she becomes an expert.

She will repay the 'social interest' on her loan by volunteering two hours per week as a CAMFED Transition Guide, supporting other young women who are just entering the CAMFED Association by delivering an orientation course with weekly sessions on topics including health, financial literacy, and career guidance.
