A loan helped to build a larger chicken coop and increase the number of chickens.

Tatenda's story

Tatenda is a 27-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her husband and children in the Mount Darwin District in Zimbabwe. She runs her own poultry business. With her first Kiva loan, Tatenda started a poultry business keeping indigenous chickens and broilers (meat chicken). She used the profit she earned to enlarge her business and support her family.

Tatenda is now requesting a second loan to build a larger chicken coop and increase the number of chickens she keeps. She plans to use the profit she earns to support family and start another line of business. Tatenda will repay the ‘social interest’ on her second loan by volunteering 2.5 hours per week as a CAMFED Transition Guide, supporting other young women who are just entering CAMFED’s alumnae organization, CAMA, by delivering an orientation course with weekly sessions on topics including health and financial literacy, as well as by providing career guidance.

This loan is special because:

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