Kalinge's story

About Dios Dental Group: Dios Dental Group is built to run as a franchise of dental clinics in Uganda. The mission is to provide accessible, high quality and affordable dental care services; maintain the best sterilization protocol and standard clinical procedures; and to remain transparent with standardized pricing across all branches. We currently have one clinic and intend to open a second clinic by end of 2017. Why We Need the Kiva Loan Dios Dental runs a dental clinic in Kampala, Uganda offering affordable preventive, curative, rehabilitative and cosmetic dental services to low income families in Kampala. Our model allows us to charge over 50% lower fees than standard dental clinics. To date, the clinic has treated over 600 dental patients and provided free screening to over 1000 people. Dios Dental is in the process of opening up a second clinic in another suburb of Kampala to extend services to other communitie. The new clinic will have capacity to serve at least 300 patients per month. A loan of $10,000 from Kiva lenders will help Dios Dental to equip the new clinic with the necessary equipment and dental medicines and consumables to increase the range of services to be offered. The new clinic will help us generate more revenues and gain the traction we need to raise additional funds from other investors and continue to build a country wide chain of clinics serving low income families in Uganda.
