Rumbidzai's story

Rumbidzai is a 19-year-old single woman living in Mbire District of Zimbabwe.

Rumbidzai is passionate about helping to empower young women in her community. As an entrepreneur, she rents a shop at a local flea market where she sells jeans, shirts, dresses, shoes and jackets. She has run the business for 18 months and during that time it has enabled her to improve her standard of living. She really loves her business and would like to increase her sales volume in order to expand.

Rumbidzai will use the Kiva loan to purchase a large bale of clothes and shoes to increase her stock. Her proceeds will be used to improve her standard of living and create employment in her community. Her dream is to one day be successful enough to open her own boutique.
