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


A loan helped to hire (rent) a mining site where she will get the clay to make more bricks.


Zulaika's story

Zulaika, age 26, is married with three children. She is in the brick making business, much as it is a male dominated business.

As ambitious as she is, she has applied for another loan of 2,000,000 UGX, to hire (rent) a mining site where she will get the clay to make more bricks. The increase in production will avail her with more bricks to sell, hence bringing in more income, to sufficiently provide for her family.

Zulaika is grateful for the continued support.
