Our Third Kiva Diva: Nomagugu in Zimbabwe (June 2014)

Our Third Kiva Diva - Nomagugu in Zimbabwe - June 2014

Kiva is a crowd-funding site supporting entrepreneurs in developing countries. Through the Estrogen Army project we will be investing in women who would otherwise have a difficult time accessing traditional loans to fund their own adventures.




Today we’re celebrating our third “Adventures with the Estrogen Army” Kiva sponsorship!

Nomagugu is a 35 year old widow with 3 children in Zimbabwe. She not only runs a grocery store (which our investment is helping to restock), but also makes time to volunteer as a Learning Guide, teaching students life skills, and as a behavior change facilitator at the local clinic.

This month we are investing in “Nomagugu”.

She is a pleasure to sponsor as our June Kiva entrepreneur. While she has a hard road ahead of her, she gives back so very much to her community.

She still needs a little help!
