Loy's story

Loy is a single mother with five children living in the Mayuge District. She owns a retail shop and she has seen her business grow over the years. Loy values her business because it is the source of her family's livelihood.

Loy has applied for a loan of 3,000,000 UGX to restock her shop to improve sales and revenue, thereby making her able to fend for her children.

Thank you, lenders.
