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

A loan helped to repair his taxi so that he can resume his business activities to earn income for his family's livelihood.

Ibrahim's story

Ibrahim is a married man with children. He is a taxi driver within Kampala. This has been his main source of income for years.

Recently, his vehicle had developed mechanical issues which have hindered his work. This has made it hard for him to look after his family since taxi driving is his only source of income.

He has therefore applied for a loan to repair his taxi so that he can resume his activities and continue to provide for his family. Ibrahim appreciates the lenders for the support that will save his business which is the source of his family's livelihood.
