About Me

I am currently working as a legal assistant at a law firm in Lusaka, Zambia. My salary from this job is not enough to sustain me so I am trying to raise funds to open up my own Airtel money booth to give me extra income.

My Business

Airtel money booths make money when customers come to deposit or withdraw money from their Airtel money accounts. The key is to have a booth an area where there is a lot of traffic in order to maximise on the profits. I plan to use the money made from this project to open up more booths. I recently received a Zidisha loan of ZMW1,288 which I repaid on time. I am still trying to raise enough money for the Airtel money booth.

Loan Proposal

I would like to use the money to start building a 2 bedroom house on a piece of land that I own in Silverest, Lusaka. I will pay back the loan using income that I receive from a business that I run called Pro Roof. We started out as roofing professionals but we have expanded into various areas of construction. We usually find our clients through referrals from previous clients and advertising our services online.
