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

A loan helped to renovate her restaurant and buy chairs and tables.

Shadia's story

Meet Shadia! A single mother of two, who has devoted her life to providing a quality life to her children.

To make ends meet, she operates a small restaurant in the outskirts of Kampala. She mainly deals in fast foods and ice cream.

Your financial support will enable her to do renovations on her restaurant and also buy chairs and tables for her restaurant.

This will enable her to serve more clients, thereby bringing in more income for family support.

Thank you, lenders.

Her dream is to expand her restaurant.
