Josephine from Zambia

$275 to expand her business by increasing her stock and range of over-the-counter medicines and pharmaceuticals.

Josephine is a 28-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her parents in Mwense District in Zambia. She runs a drug store.

Josephine is requesting a Kiva loan to expand her business by increasing her stock and range of over-the-counter medicines and pharmaceuticals.

She plans to use the profit she earns to re-invest in her business and support her family members by buying food at home.

Josephine will repay the "social interest" on her loan by volunteering three hours per week as a CAMFED Business Mentor, leading sessions to teach less experienced local women how to become successful entrepreneurs by developing their business acumen and sharing the lessons she learned from operating her business.
