A loan of $975 helped to increase his mobile money transfer working capital so that he can serve more customers at the border.

Henry's story

This is 32-year-old Henry. He is a Zoona mobile money transfer business owner. His business deals in the receiving and sending of money. This is Henry's story:

My name is Henry. I run a mobile money transfer shop at the Kazungula border post here in Zambia. I recently got married and I am looking forward to have a big family.

I am grateful for the opportunity to be on Kiva, because getting a loan in Zambia is very hard due to high interest rates. When I get this loan, I will put it in my business so that I can have more people come to my shop to send and receive their monies.

My vision is to keep growing the business by always increasing my working capital. I want to reach a point were I never have to turn away a customer because I have run out of cash. I look forward to taking out another Kiva loan as soon as I have repaid this one.
