Joseph's story

Joseph is a resident of Jinja. He is married with school-going children. He sells timber in Jinja suburbs, a business which has been his main source of income for five years. His clients are mainly construction sites in Jinja. Joseph started this business with the little savings he had accumulated from his former casual jobs. He started small but through re-investing into the business, the business has grown with an increasing clientele. Joseph has applied for a loan of 3,000,000 UGX from UGAFODE to stock more timber for sale. He is optimistic that with increased stock, his sales will increase, and so will his income. He sends his sincere gratitude to the funders for the financial support that will boost his business as well as transforming his family's standards of living. His future plan is to open a hardware shop to increase his income.
