Cynthia's story

Cynthia is a 23-year-old businesswoman from the Muzarabani District of Zimbabwe. She devotes her time to assisting the elderly in her community who do not have anyone to care for them. She is also a volunteer Camfed Learner Guide at the local secondary school, where she teaches life skills and cooperative learning to students.

To support her family, Cynthia operates a stall at a local flea market and sells shirts, t-shirts, trousers, skirts, shoes, slippers, baby clothes, and jewelry. She intends to use the Kiva loan to purchase her products in bulk so she can meet the demand of her customers.

Her hope is to grow the business and open her own store one day. With a more stable business, Cynthia will find it easier to provide for her family.
