Ben's story

Ben is a new client to the institution, married with children who attend school. Ben is a dentist operating from Rukungiri town. He has been doing this job for the last 13 years, with a lot of experience under his belt.

His main challenge is that he lacks some equipment and he decided to join UGAFODE and applied for a loan of 4,500,000 UGX to buy equipment and be able to do his work efficiently and more clients.

Ben thanks UGAFODE and Kiva lenders for the financial support which he hopes will enable him earn more income.
