A loan of $3,775 helped to buy two trading booths.

Golden's story

Golden is very pleased to have fully repaid his first Kiva loan. The loan helped him to grow his business, he was able to purchase a new computer to make his transactions much faster. Golden says the loan he got from Kiva also helped him to increase his profit margins. He has saved enough money from his profits to open two more shops in the Kawambwa and Kashikishi districts of Zambia.

Golden is taking out a second loan so that he can purchase two trading booths for his new locations. He has already trained two people to start working in the locations and is convinced that the two outlets will be successful, because there is a high demand for people to send and receive money safely. Expanding the business will help to improve Golden's standard of living. He thanks the Kiva lenders for their help.
