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

A loan helped to launch a venture in her food market with her own stall.

Kandida's story

Kandida is a 25-year-old entrepreneur and volunteer Camfed Learner Guide, living with her three children, as a single mother, in the Iringa district. Volunteering as a Learner Guide, she teaches life skills to students in her local secondary school, including lessons on effective communication and personal confidence. As she currently doesn't have her own business, Kandida is now requesting a Kiva loan in order to launch a venture in her food market, with her own stall. She will use the loan to buy commodities with which to launch the market stall. Kandida plans to use the profit she earns to support her family's household expenses. The interest on her “social-interest” loan will be repaid through Kandida's weekly two and a half hours of volunteering, which are so valuable for Camfed’s younger students.
