A loan of $975 helped to serve his mobile money transfer customers who want to send large amounts of money.


Ntalasha's story

Ntalasha is 34 years old. He is married and has a two-year-old daughter. He owns his own business, which deals in Customs, clearing and forwarding of goods, and mobile money transfers.

Ntalasha has been running his business of clearing and forwarding for four years now. He recently added mobile money transfers to the business because he saw an opportunity when he noticed how people were having trouble sending and receiving their monies at the post offices and buses. His mobile money transfer shop is located at one of Lusaka’s busiest bus stations.

Getting the Kiva loan will help Ntalasha to grow his business of mobile money transfers. He will be able to serve customers who want to send and receive large amounts of money. Ntalasha says that the opportunity to get a loan has come at the right time as this is the festive season and he anticipates that many people will be sending large amounts of money to their loved ones.

In the future, Ntalasha plans to open more mobile money transfer shops at various border posts around the country. This will help him get more profit so that he can be able to take care of his growing family and send his daughter to college. He thanks you for your support.
