Steven's story

Steven is a married man with seven children living in Kagadi Uganda. He is a retail shop owner, and that’s his main source of income, though he also owns a mobile money outlet as an additional source of income, generating activity for 10 years.

He uses the little proceeds from the business to support his family as well as pay school fees for his children; however, he faces hardships of price fluctuations of goods.

Steven is now in need of a loan facility to buy sugar, eggs, brooms, bread, soap, and plastic items to sell to his customers.
