A loan of $500 helped to make bulk purchases of jackets, shirts, skirts, and dresses to reduce costs and boost her sales and profits.


Blantina's story

Blantina is a married 29-year-old mother of three from the Wedza District of Zimbabwe. In order to be economically independent, Blantina started buying and selling clothes over two years ago. She sells jackets, shirts, skirts, shoes, slippers, and dresses. When she is not working in her flea market, Blantina serves as a Camfed volunteer Learner Guide at the local secondary school. With the Kiva loan, Blantina intends to make bulk purchases of jackets, shirts, skirts, and dresses to reduce costs and boost her sales and profits. 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 children.
