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

A loan helped to buy a new engine for his car so that he can continue transporting pupils to their schools.

Collins's story

Collins is a widower with children who attend school.

He is into the transportation business as his source of income. Collins's work involves transporting pupils to school and to the swimming pool where they attend swimming classes. He is also a swimming trainer, and mainly trains pupils.

The car he uses has a faulty engine, which has disrupted his work as well as put the lives of the pupils at a high risk.

He has therefore approached UGAFODE for a loan of 3,000,000 UGX to buy a new engine for his vehicle so that he can safely transport the pupils.

Collins appreciates the support that will save his business.
