Kafula's story

Kafula is 27 years old. He recently got married and has a daughter. He runs a business as an Agent for Zoona mobile money transfers and ZESCO prepaid electricity, in Lusaka, Zambia.

Before Kafula started running his own business, he worked at one of Zambia’s biggest newspapers as an accountant. He quit his job to start running his business in 2009. As an agent for Zoona, Kafula provides the service of receiving and sending money to people throughout the country. He is also an agent for ZESCO that means he sells electricity vouchers at his shop. He says the community benefits from his business because his shop is located at a bus stop so customers can easily transact their business with him before leaving town and when they get into town.

Kafula needs the Kiva loan so that he can boost his business of mobile money transfers. He says the loan will help him to serve more customers and earn more profits.

Having just started his family, Kafula is excited for the future and is very hopeful that the loan will contribute to the dream of giving his family the very best.
