Progress's story

Progress is a 30-year-old mother of two. She lives in Wedza District in Zimbabwe and volunteers at the local school. She used her first Kiva loan to expand her food takeaway service where she cooks for the community. She offers a menu which includes sadza (cornmeal), rice, beef, vegetables, chicken, fish and chips.

Now she have diversified her business into welding, selling door frames, wheelbarrows, etc. The loan offers her an opportunity to relocate and improve her business. She will use the proceeds to support herself and continue her education. She then started a welding business and she is doing well. She managed to pay back her first Kiva loan and used the profits to drill a well and purchase a generator for her takeaway business. She is very grateful for the loan and hopes to get another larger loan for her to further expand her welding business.She hopes that with the second loan she will ll purchase more materials for manufacturing door frames wheelbarrows, etc
