With determination and good management, he succeeded and was gradually able to increase his working capital from his profit and buy four more radios. His business is prospering and makes a profit of about US$ 500 per month. As Nkola has a vision of opening a big wholesale shop to provide business coming from villages, he decided to join one of Hope’s groups named “Bwanya,” meaning “Worthy” in English, last September. He plans to diversify his business with his loans by adding foods such as fresh fish, sacks of corn and miscellaneous other items. Nkola is 56 years old. He is married and the father of eight children between the ages of 10 and 39. Two of them live at home and are in school.
