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

A loan helped to purchase more groceries so as to accommodate some items that her customers are requesting.

Linda's story

Linda is a 25-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her husband and two children in the Mangochi district in Malawi. She runs a business selling groceries, particularly packaged foods.

She is requesting a Kiva loan to purchase a wider variety of groceries to meet customer demand. She plans to use the profit she earns to support herself and needy girls with scholastic materials.

She will repay the "social interest" on her loan by volunteering four hours per week as a member of the CAMFED Association, providing mentorship to younger members as they tackle a range of personal and entrepreneurial issues.
