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

A loan helped to buy agro-produce for trade to secure her children's school fees.

Jaackline's story

Jaackline, 35, is a single mother of four children. She lives in a rural setting, where she carries out farming. It is from this farming business that she is able to derive a livelihood and cater for the needs of her children. Jaackline grows rice and also has fish ponds where she rears fish for extra income. Additionally, she owns a produce store where she stores produce and then sells it when the prices have gone up.

Jaackline has applied for a loan of UGX 4,500,000 to buy agro-produce for resale. She intends to use the proceeds on bettering her children's standard of living. Her dream is to open up a store within Mbale town so that she can tap into the bigger market.

Jaackine is grateful to UGAFODE and Kiva for the financial support.
