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

A loan helped to buy more timber to sell in order to increase his income and meet his children's education costs.

James's story

James is married with three children and lives in Jinja. He sells timber in the Mpigi suburbs, a business he started many years ago to earn a living for his family. With the money he earns from the business, he educates his children and also provides them with other necessities.

His business is currently affected by limited stock of timber, which limits his sales. Yet there is a ready market. He has, therefore, applied for a loan of 3,000,000 UGX to buy more timber to sell. He is hopeful that, with increased stock, his sales will increase, thereby improving his income.

James is grateful for the financial support that will boost his business.
