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

A loan helped to pay school fees for her grandchildren.

Teopista's story

Teopista lives with her grandchildren in the outskirts of Kampala.

She owns rentals from which she gets income to support her family. However, sometimes the tenants take too long to pay their fees which makes it hard for her to secure school fees in time.

She has therefore approached UGAFODE for a loan of UGX 2,000,000 so that she can pay school fees arrears for her grandchildren to stay in school.

Teopista appreciates the funders for the financial support.
