Alinawo's story

At 28 , Alinawo has decided to go it solo. He has a wife and new-born baby to take care of. This has given him the push to broaden his horizon.

In this district where Alinawo resides, there is only one bank. This highlights a big opportunity for him to make a success of his business as many people in his community need to access cash. He has a certificate in accounting, so he is well prepared to handle his business finance. He has been able to build a good client base for the three months since he's opened his outlet.

Alinawo now needs financial assistance to keep this momentum going. As he is unable to receive funding from a financial institution, he's turning to Kiva to assist. This loan will help him increase his daily float used for customers sending and receiving cash, and also attain a kiosk to trade from.

From the increase of business, Alinawo plans to save to help his wife further her studies. Right now she is a stay-at-home mother.
