Gloria
Gloria is a 21 year-old mother of one living in the Lupane District of Zimbabwe. She operates a hair salon where she braids and plaits hair. She also sells hair extensions and other hair products.

Gloria is also a Camfed volunteer working as a health activist disseminating health information to students at her local school and within her community.

With the requested loan, Gloria would like to purchase hair extensions and the products and equipment needed to make her job faster and more efficient, such as hair blowers and dryers. This would attract more clients to her salon and her profits would also increase.

With the additional profits, Gloria would like to further her education and train as a primary school teacher.

Additional Information

More information about this loan


Young women who live and work in the most impoverished, rural districts of Zimbabwe have very limited income, lack collateral and cannot access loans at affordable rates
 

Camfed's borrowers are young women who live and work in these remote rural areas and belong to the Cama network (the association of Camfed alumni). Most Cama borrowers will have received money management and business training through Camfed’s programs for young women who have completed high school. Borrowers will repay interest upon their loans as a "social interest" - through their volunteer efforts to enhance the quality of the education provided by their local schools.
 

Borrowers commit to contribute a minimum of 2.5 hours per week as volunteers. As Learner Guides, they will lead students through a new wellbeing curriculum that helps develop students’ skills and capacities for decision-making, problem solving, leadership, entrepreneurship, resilience, communication, and empathy.
