Ruth's story

Ruth is a hard-working widow who lost her husband, leaving her to fend for her five children. Her grandchildren also stay with her.

Ruth is requesting a loan of 2,000,000 UGX to buy chicks and their feed in order to increase her returns. She dreams of expanding her business and investing in other businesses (like produce trading) to add to the family income.

Ruth wants to extend her sincere gratitude and appreciation to the funders for this great support that is improving and changing lives in Uganda.
