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

A loan helped to restock his shop with spare parts to sell to maximize his profits.

Brian's story

Brian is a young enterprising youth who owns a motorcycle spare parts shop as his source of income. From this business, Brian is able to earn some income to support his extended family and his dream is to become the biggest spare parts supplier in Kapchorwa.

He is currently facing capital constraints in his business, hence he requested a loan of 2,000,000 UGX that he will use to restock his shop.

He believes that once this is done, he will be able to attract more customers, hence maximizing his profits. He appreciates the lenders for the financial support.
