Delisa's story

Meet 30 year old Delisa. She has three children ages 11, 7 and 1. She lives with her husband in Lusaka, Zambia. Delisa is requesting her third Kiva loan. The first loan Delisa received helped her to open her second mobile money outlet in Mtendere, a highly populated area in Lusaka. She then requested a second loan to help increase her capital to serve additional customers at the outlet. The profits from the business helped Delisa to rent a larger house for her family to live in comfortably. Now Delisa is requesting a third Kiva loan so that she can increase the money that she uses to serve customers. This means that Delisa will be able to serve more customers in an efficient manner. As Delisa’s business has grown she has realized the need to have higher levels of cash-on-hand to service the additional customer demand. Delisa’s shops see a lot of customers coming and going since they are located in a busy market with lots of people. With her Kiva loan Delisa hopes to never have to turn away a potential customer because of not having enough liquidity in her business.
