Connie's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy poultry feed and baby chicks.

Connie's story

Connie is a widow with two children. She has been a client of UGAFODE for a long time and has paid her previous loans on time.

She is a poultry farmer who raises egg-laying chickens to earn a living and take care of her children. She has managed to boost her farming business through continuous funding from UGAFODE and she owes her success to the institution.

With the money she gets from poultry farming, she is able to educate her children up to the university level and also provides them with basic necessities.

Connie has applied for a loan of 5,000,000 UGX from UGAFODE to buy chicks and poultry feed. She is optimistic that her income will increase, thus making her financially able to pay tuition for her second daughter at university.
