Moses's story

Moses is a new client in the institution; he comes from a village in South westen Uganda. He is an energetic young man, aged 28 years.

Moses did not attend secondary school, he stopped schooling in primary four (4) because he lost his parents when he was still young.

Moses has been riding commercial motorcycles (boda boda) for over 3 years but riding other people's motorcycles and paying the owner on a daily basis.

Moses thought of buying his own but did not have enough money to do so. Through a friend he was referred to Ugafode for financial assistance and he applied for a loan of 2,000,000 UGX so that at least he can earn some income and at last own it in his name. He is very grateful for the financial assistance.
