Plitildah's story

Plitildah is a 22-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her husband and child in the Kabwe district in Zambia. She sells rice and potatoes. Plitildah is requesting a Kiva loan to expand her business by buying more bags of rice and potatoes in order to meet her customers' needs. Plitildah plans to use the profits she earns to pay school fees for her siblings.

Plitildah will repay the ‘social interest’ on her loan by volunteering three hours per week as a member of the Camfed alumni association, Cama, providing mentorship to younger members as they tackle a range of personal and entrepreneurial issues.
