Susan's story

Susan is a 20-year-old single mother and a vibrant young woman who is focused on improving her standard of living and that of her family. She and her father are the only two working individuals in a household of eight members. Her siblings are still in school. Susan was unable to further her studies due to a lack of resources, so she acquired work as a teller at a local store.

She has since become an entrepreneur and provides her community with a safe and secure mobile financial solution. Susan also offers an option of having an electronic savings account through the Zoona platform, a service that has no monthly charge or deposit fee. She is able to earn income from every transaction she processes. With a Kiva loan, Susan will be able to obtain a branded kiosk and the necessary funds for processing cash-in and cash-out requests.

Because of her business, Susan will be able to properly provide for her toddler’s essential needs, while helping her father with the household expenses.
