Chisomo's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to start running her own business as a Zoona mobile money transfer franchise agent.

Chisomo's story

Twenty-six-year-old Chisomo has had a hard time finding work. She has since created her own opportunity by becoming a mobile money agent. By running her own business Chisomo will be able to earn an income daily to support her daily needs and help her family with expenses. She has had training with Zoona to better empower herself to make a success of her business.

Chisomo says her most exciting thought about the business will be the interactions she'll have with her customers, learning about other cultures, and also customers' behaviors.

Chisomo is reaching out to Kiva as she lacks capital to fund her business. This loan will help her attain a kiosk to trade from and a float with which to trade daily. Chisomo will be helping her community against financial exclusion by sending and receiving their funds via a mobile transaction which is a quick, reliable and cost effective means of moving money around.

Chisomo thanks everyone for their assistance in helping her create her own employment.
