Lindiwe's story

Lindiwe is a 25-year-old married mother of one. She resides in the Mt Darwin District of Zimbabwe where she volunteers as a Camfed Learner Guide at the nearby school and assists the elderly in her community with household chores. In addition, Lindiwe rents a table at the local flea market to sell baby clothes, shoes, jeans, shirts, skirts, tracksuits, and t-shirts. She has been running this business for one year now and it has enabled her to support her family.

With the Kiva loan, Lindiwe will purchase more clothes to increase her supplies. Her hope is to grow the business and open her own store. This will bring stability to her business and enable her to provide for her family’s basic needs.
