Haruna's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy stock of cooking oil, soap, salt, sugar and rice to sell.
Haruna is a 36-year-old married man hailing from Fort Portal, Uganda. For the last nine years, he has been operating a wholesale business, which he started after realizing that this business is economically viable and will enable him to achieve his goal of raising a good income to maintain his family. He is let down by debtors who delay and even default, leading to low profits. Nevertheless, he has a goal of buying a car for a taxi transport business and earning good profits of around 20,000,000 Uganda shillings annually as a way of diversifying his income. Haruna has asked for a loan to buy stock of cooking oil, soap, salt, sugar and rice to sell.
