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

A loan helped to increase her business cash on hand, which is used to process mobile transactions for her unbanked community.

Constance's story

Constance wants to keep the momentum going! This year Zoona was awarded the Bank of Zambia Governor’s Outstanding Innovation Award for 2017, recognizing the company as a leader in innovation and a key contributor to financial inclusion on the continent. Constance is proud to be part of the reason this award was possible. With her focus to keep increasing the percentage of financial inclusion and employment, she has once again expanded.

While choosing locations that have no financial services nearby is great for the community, it has Constance in a catch-22, as she has to close the outlet and travel to the bank or one of her other outlets to replenish float, creating mistrust with the interruption in trading hours. With this loan, Constance will help stabilize the business by distributing adequate cash and make electronic transactions amongst her outlets daily, helping her to retain her customers who would otherwise process their transactions with competitors.

Constance is excited for this growth opportunity and the growth of her tellers into entrepreneurs themselves. To date, she has 44 employees. With your support, Constance can keep making a change.
