Priscilla is a 24-year-old businesswoman who is married and living in Hurungwe, Zimbabwe. She owns a grocery shop where she sells food such as cooking oil, sugar, salt, mealie-meal, sugar beans, matemba (sardines), biscuits, sweets and maputi (roasted corn).

Priscilla inspires young women in her community as both a Camfed Learner Guide working to improve the learning environment for students and as an entrepreneur. She has been running her business for the past year and has managed to employ one person during that time.
