Jackie's story

Jackie has been married to his wife of two years. His wife is a stay at home mom as they have an 1 year old baby. Jackie has two brothers and a sister. Jackie is requesting to be funded by Kiva lenders so that he can start running his own business to enable him to provide basic needs for his young family.

Jackie has been working as a teller for one of the Zoona agents who started trading in October. He is very excited for this opportunity to run his own business as an agent, he says “This world is improving. When I was a teller, I was excited because people were sending and receiving money simply, now I will be able to do this on my own as a businessman.” When Jackie gets the funds, he will be able to set up his business and provide financial services to people in his community. He will attain a branded kiosk and have the funds needed to serve customers.

Jackie says this loan will change his life for good. As his business begins to increase, he hopes to bring in his wife so that they can run it together and grow faster. He is hopeful that his standard of living will improve.
