Reuben Chongo is a teacher in Chingola and has a wife and six children. He was offered a house by the Ministry of Education that would suit his large family, but he did not have the necessary money to buy the property.
He applied for several loans from other banks but was turned down. He was disheartened at the thought that he would lose the home to another buyer. He remembered hearing about Bayport Financial Services and applied for a home loan and was delighted when his loan was approved.
“Thanks to Bayport, I was able to purchase the house and my family has a roof over their heads”, Reuben said.
Teaching is Joseph Mwale’s passion. As a maths teacher at Mulilantambo Basic School in Luanshya, Zambia, he had a dream of opening a private school to help ease the over-crowding in government schools.
Bayport Financial Services Zambia helped to make his dream come true by approving a loan application to produce a promotional fundraising video for his private school idea. The video inspired the Luanshya Community to raise the necessary capital to build the Jomwa Junior Secondary School.
Today, the school has more than 270 students. Joseph is a part-time teacher there. Not only has he achieved his dream but he also earns additional money to support his wife, their four children and his parents.
Joyce Chigulu is a policewoman in Chingola. She lives on a farm with her husband and five children. In her line of work, she meets many orphaned street children who are starving and homeless. Joyce was very upset by the condition these children were living in and was determined to do something about it and make a change in their lives. She came to Bayport Financial Services with an idea to build a school for these orphaned street children and was granted a small business loan to help her start her dream.
Today, the school has 50 pupils that are aged between six and 15. They receive lessons in English, Mathematics, Science, and Environmental Science. There are two full-time employees, one of which is Joyce’s 22-year-old son, Tulani. Joyce pays the salaries of her employees from her police salary and relies on the local community for donations to help keep the school running.
Obby Mwelwa is a school teacher in Luanshya, where he lives with his wife and their five children. When their last child was born, they decided they needed additional income to support their family.
Together Obby and his wife, Lyness, applied for a loan from Bayport Financial Services to buy 50 chickens to start a chicken farming business. Their business has grown in leaps and bounds and they have increased their stock to more than 400 chickens.
The business has been so profitable that it not only generates enough income to pay the schools fees for their children, but it has also enabled them to refurbish their home.
