Ruvarashe's story

Ruvarashe is a 25-year-old businesswoman. She is divorced with three children and lives in the Nyaminyami district of Zimbabwe. She is a source of inspiration to most young people in her community because she is determined to succeed. She often volunteers at the local secondary school as a Camfed Learner Guide and helps with the cleaning of the school.

Ruvarashe operates a grocery shop at her local business center selling sugar, cooking oil, rice, flour, washing soap, soft drinks, and snacks. She hopes to expand her business into a retail shop if profits allow. Ruvarashe will use the Kiva loan to purchase her products in bulk, boosting the sales and volume of profits. With the additional income, her wish is to send her children to boarding school.
