A loan of $4,950 helped to set up his mobile money transfer shop by purchasing a trading booth and to have some working capital.

Andrew's story

Andrew is 27 years old. He is the sixth born in a family of eight. He has just completed training with Mobile Transactions to finally make his dream of running his own business come true. Andrew needs a loan to make this happen.

When Andrew finished secondary school, he took a short accounting course in his hometown of Lusaka. He describes himself as a hard worker who has passed through a lot of ups and downs in his life. He says this makes him very strong and focused in whatever he does. He will use his loan to start up a business of mobile money transfers by buying a trading booth, which he can use to make transactions. He will also use the money to buy all the necessary equipment to run a successful mobile money shop.

Andrew is hopeful that once he gets his Kiva loan, he will be able to start running his own business. He says his life will change because he will be able to earn some money and improve his standard of living and that of his siblings. He thanks the Kiva lenders.
