Tracy's story

Tracy is 21 and single. She resides in the Muzarabani District of Zimbabwe. Ever since she left school she has been running a business buying and selling groceries from her homestead. She has managed to save and expand the business to the small shop that she now operates at the local business center. She serves as a Peer Educator in her community and as a Camfed Learner Guide at the local secondary school. She supplies the community with sugar, rice, tea, stationery, sanitary items, cooking oil, and potato chips. With this Kiva loan Tracy is going to make bulk purchases to reduce her costs and increase sale volume and profits. She hopes to be economically stable so that she can support her siblings through school.
