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

A loan helped to fund her second location with additional float to grow her mobile money business and service more customers in her community who need financial services.

Florence's story

Florence is 27 years old. She lives in Lusaka with her three-month-old baby. She runs her own business. Her business helps people in her community to send and receive money from one place to the other. Florence is a Kiva beneficiary. She has accessed two loans from Kiva, which have helped her to grow her business and earn more profits. She now runs two Zoona mobile money transfer outlets and has employed two people to help her with the day to day transactions. Florence has successfully repaid the two loans and continues to work hard to expand her business. She wanted to take this opportunity to let her Kiva lenders know that she has relocated and lives in an area nearer to her places of business. This helps her to manage her business and take care of the baby. Florence has requested a subsequent loan so that she can fund her second shop. She has noticed that it takes longer to serve customers due to insufficient float. This loan will help her build the money that she uses to serve customers and earn more commissions. Florence depends on the commissions to take care of herself and her baby.
