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

A loan helped to buy a tuk-tuk to reach more customers who could not previously afford clean drinking water.

Ivan's story

Ivan was previously working with the British Columbia Children’s Hospital and supporting a children's project at Holy Innocents Children’s Hospital Mbarara. While frequently visiting the Nakivale refugee settlement, which is home to more than 100,000 refugees, Ivan noticed that access to drinking water was one of the biggest problems.

This situation stirred the need in him to provide clean, safe and affordable drinking water. When the opportunity to join the Jibu network availed itself in December 2019, he saw the perfect chance to provide much-needed safe and affordable drinking water to the community.

This loan will help Ivan to acquire a tuk-tuk to supply water to the refugee community and the whole Mbarara district. The loan will be repaid from his profits with all repayments projected to be made as scheduled.
