Eulalia Francisco's story

Married, Eulalia is a 28-year-old mother of a son and resides in Maputo. Eulalia spent her first year of marriage still residing with her parents as her husband was not yet able to accommodate his wife (he was living with his mother and brothers). Whilst her husband was working hard to bring his family together, Eulalia had a food sales business to help with the finances. Eulalia and her son now live together with her husband and his family. They dream of having a place of their own.

Eulalia is one of the first Zoona mobile money agents. Previously, from managing her food sales business, she knows how tough business can be at times and how important it is to give your customers the best service. With this in mind, Eulalia is excited as she will not only earn an income but provide her community with a vital service as much of the population is still unbanked. Sending and receiving money is done via a mobile transaction. With every transaction, Eulalia earns an income.

Eulalia reached out to Kiva as she needs capital. This loan will help her attain a kiosk to trade from and funds needed to service her customers. Eulalia thanks Kiva lenders for this opportunity and their help with her dreams.
