Cecilia's story

Cecilia is a single 34 year-old mother with a five-year-old daughter. She operates a Zoona mobile money transfer business at a shopping center located in Lusaka, Zambia. Having been raised by her single mother, she now works very hard so that her daughter will have better opportunities and less hardship than she did during childhood. Upon graduating from college with a diploma in Marketing, Cecilia began working for Southern Cross Motors as a sales consultant. This is her full-time employment. However, she sees more opportunity for income in her mobile money transfer business that she runs to supplement her earnings and provide for her daughter and 72 year-old mother. This loan will allow Cecilia to grow her business by adding needed working capital to service additional customers in need of financial services at her shop. Cecilia sees the opportunity this loan can provide her in growing the business and earning more profits. She hopes to be able to grow the business so she can leave her sales job and focus completely on growing her business. This will also allow her more flexible working hours so she can spend more time with her young daughter.
