Petronella's story

Petronella is a 37-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her parents in the Mwense district in Zambia. She sells fish. She is requesting a Kiva loan to expand her business. She plans to use the profit she earns to help her family members. She will repay the 'social interest' on her loan by volunteering 3 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 their self-esteem and motivating them to remain in school.
