Lawrence wants a loan of UGX 3,000,000/= (three million shillings) to buy building materials to complete his residential house and have a good environment for the family.The challenge he is facing includes the high prices for the construction materials which has made the house stay incomplete for so long.
He thanks God for UGAFODE, whose services came at the time he needed them most. With the loan, he will finally be able to occupy his new house. His family is excited because very soon their status will change from living in a mud-and-wattle house to living in a permanent house. Lawrence thanks UGAFODE and Kiva lenders for the partnership.
