A loan of $975 helped to increase the money he has available to make transfers.

Edson's story

Eddie is 33 years old. He runs a small business in his hometown of Chililabombwe, a town whose main economic activity is the mining of copper. He is very happy for the opportunity to get his very first loan.

Eddie’s business deals in the supply of stationary materials, small computer accessories and relish. He also offers the services of mobile money transfers, photocopying and typing. He says most of his profits come from his mobile money transfers business.

Eddie started running his business three years ago. He does not have a building structure, but used his initiative to come up with a makeshift small shop that he uses to make his transactions. Most of Eddie’s customers are miners who send money to their families back home.

Eddie is very excited to get his first loan because it will help him to have some good working capital. Having more capital will boost Eddie’s business, as he will be able to serve more customers who want to send money at his shop.

He has hopes of seeing his business grow to greater heights. Someday, he would like to move to a shop with a proper building structure.
