A loan helped to purchase medicines for sale to increase her income.

Judith's story

Judith is a single mother of two children and lives on the outskirts of Mbale town. In this same place she owns a small drug store, selling drugs to the community. Judith is also passionate about the welfare of children and finds time to volunteer at a nearby orphanage.

Her business stock has been running low for some time and yet she lacks the capital to restock her drug store.

She requested for a loan of 1,000,000 UGX that she will use to purchase drugs for her shop and appreciates the financial support from the lenders.
