Dadirai's story

Dadirai is 30 years old and married with three children. She lives in Chikomba West district. Dadirai volunteers in schools as a Cama Community Health Trainer spreading health information to school children and her community members. She is currently running a market gardening business which she started in 2012 after she realised that it just wasn’t enough to teach people about health. She wanted to help them eat healthy foods and live healthy lives as well.

The business has also allowed her to pay school fees for two of her children and provide food for her family. She sells various types of vegetables such as 'covo', rape, onions, tomatoes, spinach, cassava, sweet potatoes and carrots in her community.

Dadirai sees a good opportunity to grow her business. There are no fruit and vegetable shops in her area, so she dreams of opening her own shop to meet the needs of her community. She even hopes to hire employees. This Kiva loan will give her a chance to take her enterprise to the next level.
