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


A loan helped to stock more shoes for sale to earn a living for his family.


Richard's story

Richard sells second hand shoes as his main source of income to fend for his wife and son. He is, however, challenged with inadequate capital to add more stock in the business.

He has applied for a loan of 800,000 UGX from UGAFODE to stock more shoes for sale to earn a living for his family.
