Jolle Mwansa is a resident of Rufunsa and runs two successful shops in the area. He is well known by the locals for his hospitality and determination. His financial discipline has earned him an impeccable record with Umino as he has a perfect repayment history. His story cannot go untold and will continue to inspire other would be clients both now and in the future.
In 2017, he heard about Umino from his friend who applied for a loan from the institution. Resultantly, in January 2018 he applied for his first loan of K6,000 (457.143USD) to expand his grocery business. After experiencing the benefits for himself he decided to access a bigger loan of K10,000 (761.905USD) which he used to expand his shop to include a plastic shop. His grocery business was now running adjacent to his kitchen ware and plastic shop.
“Since my first loan, I have continued to enjoy a good working relationship with Umino, my wife and 3 children can attest to the improvement in our livelihood from our first loan till date.” Jolle Mwansa
With the passage of time Jolle Mwansa noticed that there was need for a deep freezer in his grocery shop, to supply the locals with cold refreshments especially in hot weather. He applied for his third loan and bought a solar powered deep freezer for his grocery Shop. “whenever people ask me about Umino, I tell them that, the loans are for helping the community so that our lives can improve, people who still have doubts about Umino will continue to watch while we grow our businesses in Rufunsa”.
