A loan of $2,800 helped to purchase phone equipment to use at his mobile money outlet.


Martin's story

Martin is 37 years old and engaged to be married this year. He has a 12-year-old daughter in the sixth grade. Currently, he works as a teller at a Zoona mobile money outlet in Solwezi, Zambia. He has been working as a teller for three years.

Understanding the mobile money business well, Martin would like to open his own outlet so that he can earn more income and provide for his child and wife-to-be. He is a big believer in the mobile money industry and the service it provides his community. Many people are in need of accessible and easy ways to transfer money in Zambia, he says.

The loan will help Martin purchase phone equipment to use at his shop. It will also provide him with needed working capital to service more customers. He has found a location for his shop and has the support of his current manager in beginning his own business endeavor. His goal is to work hard and grow his first shop so that he can open more outlets and provide better opportunities for his family.
