A loan of $500 helped to purchase more clothing to sell.


Siphosethu's story

Siphosethu is a young woman, aged 19. She resides in the Nkayi district of Zimbabwe with her husband and their one child. She is well known in her community as a volunteer who works to keep children in school. Since finishing school, Siphosethu has been renting a stall at a flea market where she sells shoes, skirts, T-shirts, shirts, trousers, jeans, and ladies' tops. For the past year, Siphosethu has been able to support her family and two sibling’s needs with the profits from her business.

With the Kiva loan, Siphosethu will purchase clothing in order to increase sales. An increase in business means she will be able to send her child to school as well as further her own education.
