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


Saliwe's story

Saliwe is a 29-year-old businesswoman. She is married and has three children. She lives in the Mudzi District of Zimbabwe. Saliwe has been successfully buying and selling clothes and shoes, for over a year and a half. She sells stockings, shoes, shirts, skirts, shorts, pants, bags, t-shirts, track suits, and dresses. When she is not working in the flea market, Saliwe serves every week as a volunteer Learner Guide in her community’s school.

With the requested Kiva loan, Saliwe intends to make bulk clothing purchases, which will reduce her costs and boost her sales and profits. She is looking forward to improving her family’s quality of life.
