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

A loan helped to restock his spare parts shop to raise revenue to secure school fees for his siblings.

Raymondo's story

Raymondo operates a spare parts shop, specifically for motorcycles. He started small but, through hard work and persistence, his business is gradually growing.

He has applied for a loan of 3,000,000 UGX to buy more stock of motorcycle spare parts so that he can increase his sales. This will increase his income, thus enabling him to take care of his family and also keep his siblings in school.

Raymondo appreciates the support that will boost his business.
