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

A loan helped buy more stock of clothes to sell to raise school fees for his children.

Augustus's story

Augustus is a married man with children who attend school.

He operates a boutique in Rukungiri, selling new clothes for all genders. His shop is located along a busy road in Rukungiri municipality. He has been in this business for a long time, and it’s from this business that he is able to pay school fees for his children and also sustain his family.

Augustus saw a need to increase his stock to meet the ever-increasing demand, but he could not raise the needed funds, so he decided to apply for a loan of UGX 3,500,000.

He is very grateful for the financial support of UGAFODE.
