Unlocking Africa’s True Potential

All over Africa, people rely on their family and community for support in helping them pay their school fees, cope with emergencies, and save for their future. The community is at the centre of their lives, and these are the communities we’re here to serve.

We believe Africa is the next frontier of innovation, and that through entrepreneurship, women empowerment, and technology, we’ll be able to unlock the true potential of our continent.

After my first month as an Agent, I knew that this is something that would really really grow. Over the last few years, I managed to open 27 outlets and employ 43 Tellers. I was then approached by Zoona and asked to be the Zoona Zambia Managing Director. I’m very excited to see where this part of the journey takes me, and to use my experience as a previous Agent to help other entrepreneurs thrive.
