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

A loan helped to purchase chicken to sell.

Ruth's story

Ruth is 40 years old and living in Jinja with her family. She deals in chicken rearing and selling. She sells to the people of Buwenge and the surrounding areas.

She wants to stock chicken for Christmas since we are approaching the festive season, so she came for a loan of 1,000,000 UGX to fulfill her plans. She will use the proceeds to cater to family needs.

Ruth appreciates the support.
