Rumbidzai's story

Rumbidzai is an 18-year-old single young woman living in the Hurungwe District of Zimbabwe She helps young people in her community by conducting life skills education classes. In addition to being a community role model, she started her poultry business in August after noticing an increase in demand for broiler chickens. Rumbidzai currently produces about 115 chickens every six weeks and sells them to the local customers. Rumbidzai knows that she could sell more chickens each month if she could invest in growing her business. However, all her income is needed to provide for her two children who are dependent upon her. With this Kiva loan, she will be able to grow her business by buying more broiler chicks and chick feed to increase production. With this investment in her business, her profits will increase, and she will be able to care for her two dependents and keep them in school.
