Africano, at the age of 50, had never thought of having a permanent house because he has to take his children to school and also take care of the family's day-to-day needs. He has, however, worked hard on his coffee plantation and he now sees his dream coming true.

Africano currently has a plan of acquiring more land from the neighborhood, on which he will construct a permanent house. He hopes to get a loan of 3,000,000 from UGAFODE Microfinance Limited to enable him achieve his dream. The first step to building a permanent house will be acquiring this piece of land.

He is happy to have funders who can enable people like him to fulfill their dreams.
