Ronny's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to serve customers who want to send and receive money from his shop.
What is your background? My name is Ronny. I have two children, aged six and four years old. I am married and my wife runs a farm. When I competed high school in 2002, I did not have money to go to college and so I sold small things in the streets. Street-vending made me the person I am today because I came to learn a lot of things about life and about business. What will you use the Kiva loan for? I will use the Kiva loan to add to my operational capital, so that I can be able to serve customers who come and send and receive money from my shop. What do you love about your business? I love every aspect of running my own business, especially the fact that it has made me more sustainable. I am now able to provide for my family. It is also nice that I run a business that provides a service to all kinds of people. What are the challenges that you face in your business? So far, my business lacks enough working capital. Monze, as a town, has grown and clients have increased with its growth. So, with a small operating capital, it is very hard. How does your business benefit customers in your community? My business provides the quickest, easiest, and safest way of moving money in my hometown. What are your hopes and dreams for the future? My greatest dreams are to grow into the largest money transfer agent in Monze and to provide services to the expectations of my clients, and Zoona, which provides the platform. How will the loan help you? The Kiva loan will help to boost my operating capital, so that I do not run out of cash whenever my clients need it.
