A loan helped to expand her business by purchasing more stock of groceries.


Tambuzai's story

Tambuzai is a 24-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her husband and child in Sesheke district in Zambia. Tambuzai sells groceries. With her first Kiva loan, she replenished her inventory, which increased her sales. Now her business is thriving.

Tambuzai is requesting a second loan to expand her business by buying more groceries to meet her customers' demands. She plans to use the profit she earns to provide for her family. Tambuzai will repay the "social interest" on her second loan by volunteering three hours per week as a CAMFED Learner Guide, facilitating classes from CAMFED’s "My Better World" program with students at her local secondary school, helping to build children’s self-esteem and motivating them to remain in school.
