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

A loan helped to buy firewood for burning her charcoal stoves to make them ready for sale.

Sarah's story

Sarah lives in the outskirts of the city with her children and is engaged in making clay stoves. From the business, she gets money to pay her children's school fees, meets her basic needs, and other needs. Her main clients are business people from neighboring areas and traders from the city. She is hard working and committed to educating her children up to the university.

Sarah is requesting for a loan of 2,500,000 UGX to boost her charcoal stove making business by buying firewood for burning the stoves. With this, she is hopeful that she will sell more stoves therefore increasing sales and profit. She is hardworking and thanks Kiva lenders and UGAFODE for being there for her in times of financial need.
