A loan helped to provide essential transaction cash needed for her to serve her customers and grow her business.


Tamara's story

Tamara is a 24-year-old micro-entrepreneur. She lives in a rented house in Kafue with her two-year-old daughter. She recently expanded her Zoona business after opening a new mobile money transfer shop in her town of Kafue.

This is Tamara’s third loan. She used the money from her first loan to increase her working capital so that she could serve her customers who wanted to send larger amounts of money. She says the loan was very helpful in growing her business as she is now able to serve more customers who come to send and receive money and she no longer has to turn them away. She then got a second loan to help open a new outlet by purchasing a Zoona branded trading booth. Her earnings have improved and she is excited about the growth of her business. She has even employed two more people to help her run the two outlets.

Tamara is taking out a subsequent loan for her new shop in Kafue. The loan will be used as working capital float for her new outlet. Right now, the new Kafue shop is working on a minimal working capital float of $1,000. This is not enough to satisfy the growing customer base in the thriving town. The loan will help Tamara grow her business and provide for her daughter.
