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

A loan helped to buy more drugs to sell to improve her drug store's revenue.

Agnes's story

Agnes is 36 years old, and she is married with two children who attend school. She owns a small drug store in Ibanda town, which has been her main source of income for 6 years. She also grows banana for extra income and to ensure food security at home.

Agnes says that her drug store would be performing better, but the limited stock is a major challenge to its development. She has therefore approached UGAFODE for a loan of 5,000,000 UGX to stock more drugs to sell.

She is optimistic that the increased inventory will trigger an increase in the sales, thus facilitating growth and economic transformation. She has a dream of transforming the drug store to a wholesale shop in the future, and she is working hard towards achieving this goal.

Agnes appreciates the lenders for the financial support that will boost her business.
