Jonan is 35 years old, and is married with two children, one of whom attends school. Jonan is a farmer who mainly grows coffee, and has a nursery bed for coffee seedlings which he at times sells to other farmers. He has been in this business for the last three years. Jonan gets additional income from keeping poultry.

He has approached Ugafode for a loan of UGX 2,000,000 to enable him to construct a water tank where he can get water for his poultry and coffee seedlings during the dry season. Water scarcity is always his major challenge during the dry season, and he hopes that by constructing this water tank it will boost his farming projects.

Jonan is pictured in the photograph with a Ugafode staff member.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes.
