Mavis's story

Mavis is 26 years old and married with three children. She resides in the Chiredzi District of Zimbabwe, where she volunteers as a Camfed Learner Guide; Mavis teaches new ways of learning to the children of the local school.

In addition to her volunteer work, Mavis has a small business at the local flea market. She rents a table to sell products such as dresses, hats, socks, shirts, skirts, track suits, and t-shirts. Mavis has been running this business for one year now and it has enabled her to support her family. Her husband also helps her with running the business. With a Kiva loan, Mavis will purchase bags, shoes, jeans, shirts, skirts, track suits, and t-shirts to increase her supplies and improve her profit margins.
