Wadzanai's story

Wadzanai is a 26-year-old single woman living in the Mt. Darwin District of Zimbabwe. She runs a grocery shop where she sells items such as bread, milk, butter, and sugar. Wadzanai opened her business in October 2013 after she realized that she needed a stable source of income to sustain herself and her siblings. She volunteers each week at the local secondary school as a Camfed Learner Guide, as well.

As for her business plans, Wadzanai intends to use the Kiva loan to purchase sugar, cooking oil, rice, flour, washing soap, soft drinks, and snacks in bulk to reduce the costs. As a single woman, Wadzanai intends to invest her money in her education and also use it to support her siblings.
