A loan helped stock more maize flour to improve sales.

Safina's story

Meet Safina, a 44-year-old single mother of four children. She lives in Jinja. She is a member of mukisa mpewo group which she also chairs.

She mills and packages corn flour within Jinja town, a business she started after separating with her husband to provide for her children. Initially, she was a stay at home mom, but after what happened, she decided to enter the working class to give her children a decent living. Her sales are limited by her stock which has lowered her earnings. She has therefore applied for a loan of 2,000,000 UGX from UGAFODE to stock more maize flour so that she can improve sales.

She is hopeful that the funding will boost her business which will provide her with enough money to take care of her children since she is the sole bread winner. Safina appreciates the funders for the financial support that will transform her family's livelihood.
