Mary's story

Mary is a 25-year-old married mother of one from the Mt. Darwin District, Zimbabwe. Mary volunteers as a Camfed Learner Guide; she teaches life skills education in local schools. Additionally, Mary rents a table at the local flea market to sell products such as bags, shoes, jeans, shirts, skirts, track suits, and t-shirts. She has been running this business for half a year now and it has enabled her to support her family. With the Kiva loan, Mary will purchase more items to increase her supplies. Her hope is to grow the business and open her own store. This will bring stability to her business and will enable her to provide for her family’s basic needs.
