Viola's story

Viola is an 18-year-old businesswoman from Gokwe North District in Zimbabwe. To support herself, she has been selling kapenta fish (dried sardines) for two years. Her business is growing, but she would like to see it expand with the help from a Kiva loan. With the Kiva loan, Viola will purchase kapenta (dried sardines) in bulk so as to increase her sales and boost her profits. To give back to her community, Viola volunteers at her local school by teaching life skills to students and sweeping the school yard. With the additional profits she hopes to expand into a large retail shop.
