A loan of $500 helped to purchase grocery products in bulk.


Rumbidzai's story

Rumbidzai is a 21-year-old businesswoman from the Mt. Darwin District of Zimbabwe. She is a source of inspiration to young people in her community because of her determination to succeed. She works with young students at the local secondary school as a Camfed volunteer Learner Guide, and she operates a small grocery shop at her local business center. Rumbidzai sells sugar, cooking oil, rice, flour, washing soap, soft drinks, and snacks, but she hopes to expand her business into a larger store if profits allow.

Rumbidzai will use the Kiva loan to purchase her products in bulk to reduce the costs and increase profits. This way, Rumbidzai can be financially independent and support her family. Her greatest hope is to see vulnerable children being taken care of in her community.
