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

A loan helped to buy a second motorcycle.

Asadu's story

Asadu is 29 years old, and he is a father of two.

Asadu runs a motorcycle transport business in the city center. This type of business has mushroomed in the city over the years, because it provides a quick solution to the heavy road traffic, and it also provides quick access to destinations.

Asadu started riding a hired motorcycle. With the help of a Kiva loan, he managed to buy his own motorcycle. However, with the ever increasing costs of living, his income has become insufficient to cover all the family's financial obligations.

Asadu requested a loan of UGX 3,000,000 to buy a second motorcycle. The extra income will cover the family expenses, thus improving his family's living standards.

Asadu sends his gratitude to the lenders for empowering low income earners.
