Jonas's story

Jonas is 30 years old. He is the third-born in a family of six. He is married and has two children, ages 9 and 2. His 9-year-old son is in third grade. Jonas lives in Chililabombwe, where he operates a Zoona mobile money transfer business.

Jonas describes himself as a hard worker who has passed through a lot of ups and downs in his life. He says this makes him very strong and focused in whatever he does. He enjoys running his business because it is a way for him to provide for his family. He says he also gets to meet a lot of people in his community as he spends most of his time at his green booth, where he serves customers who need to access financial services.

Jonas will use his loan to purchase three trading booths so that he can grow his business and service more customers in need of mobile money services. He is hopeful that once he gets his Kiva loan he will be able to grow his business and earn more profits. He plans to reinvest the profits back into the business and provide a better life for his family.
