A loan of $975 helped to increase the float in the till.


Joseph's story

Joseph lives in Mombasa, Kenya; he is 28 years old, married, and blessed with one child.

He is happy that he got his first Kiva loan, which he was able to pay back without challenges.

Joseph is seeking another loan to add more float in to his account (this is stored value credit for sale in mobile money services), so that he can serve more customers. He has been in this business for than three years, and the major problem he faces is the high costs of transport and delays when the system fails.

The income that is raised from the business will help him improve his living standards.
