Makasi Lamuka Saving Group's story

Makasi Lamuka Saving Group is located in the outskirts of Kampala. The group is comprised of refugees who decided to come together with the aim to eradicate poverty.

Therese is a single mother of school-aged children. She is a refugee in Uganda, where she has now lived for years and which she now calls home.

She sells African fabric to tailors to raise income needed to support her children. However, sometimes she is overwhelmed by her many financial obligations, considering that she is her family's sole bread winner.

Therese needs a loan to buy more African fabric to increase her revenue so she can keep her children in school. She appreciates UGAFODE and Kiva for believing in her and lending her the funds. Her dream is to educate her children through college.
