A loan helped to buy more hair products.


Sindisiwe's story

Sindisiwe is a 29-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her mother, siblings, and children in the Matobo district of Zimbabwe. She has a business selling hair products. Sindisiwe is requesting a Kiva loan to increase the size and range of her stock. She plans to use the profit she earns to pay school fees for her children and to provide for herself.

Sindisiwe will repay the ‘social interest’ on her loan by volunteering 2.5 hours per week as an Early Childhood Education Guide, raising awareness among community members regarding the importance of early childhood education.


This loan is special because:

It is a 0% interest loan for young women with new businesses.
