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

A loan helped to repair his motorcycle so that he can continue fending for his family.

Joseph's story

Joseph is a husband and father to two adorable children. He is a motorcyclist in Mpigi town, Uganda, which has been his main source of income ever since he started working.

Through riding, he is able to provide for his family and educate his children. However, his family is headed to a hopeless situation ever since his motorcycle developed mechanical issues.

To continue earning a living for his family, Joseph has therefore applied for a loan of 400,000 UGX to repair his motorcycle, so that he can resume his activities.

Joseph requests Kiva lenders to come to his rescue.
