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

A loan helped to grow her mobile money transfers and airtime credit business.

Shelly's story

A hardworker, Shelly is 31 years old and lives in Lusaka with her mother and four siblings. She sells mobile money transfers and airtime credit.

Shelly would like to serve customers who want to send and receive larger amounts of money, but because of her lack of working capital, she can’t. So she is applying for a 7500 ZMW loan through Zoona to add to her working capital, which is currently at $1000.

Shelly is happy with the opportunity to get this loan, as it will help her earn more in profits that will be used to enlarge her business. Her earnings will also help her to pay for her sister’s school fees.
