A loan of $950 helped to add to his working capital, which will allow him to serve more customers sending and receiving money at his shop.

Jimmy's story

Jimmy is 40 years old and lives in Lundazi with his wife and three children. He operates a small mobile money business. In order to continue to grow his business, Jimmy is requesting a second Kiva loan.

Jimmy has successfully paid back his first Kiva loan, which enabled him to increase his working capital to serve more customers. Now, Jimmy is adding new services like mobile airtime sales to his shop and needs additional working capital in order to do so. Jimmy is thankful for the opportunity to access a loan through Kiva because securing working capital still remains a major challenge in growing his business.

As Jimmy adds new services to his mobile money business he anticipates he will gain new customers. This will help him earn more profit. With his increased earnings Jimmy hopes to provide a good education and better life for his children.
