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

A loan helped to restock her bar to raise revenue for her children's schooling.

Prossy's story

Prossy is a single mother of three children who runs a small bar in a nearby trading center, a business that has been sustaining her family for the last six years.

Prossy is requesting a loan of 4,000,000 Ugandan shillings (UGX) to restock her bar with beers, sodas, and other beverages, as she prepares for the coming busy Christmas season. She hopes for a better return, which she will use to educate her children and provide them with basic necessities.

Prossy appreciates your support which will boost her business.
