Jim's story

The man in the photo is Jim, aged 58 years, who is married and is a resident of Rugando village, Rushasha parish, Rukungiri. He is a farmer and keeper of goats and cows. He is a retired head teacher and gets a monthly pension. He is building a commercial building at his local trading center. This commercial house will provide him with additional income when it's complete and is rented out.

He applied for a loan of 2,000,000ugx to top up on the money he has and buy cement, sand, paint and to pay labor. Jim wants this money in order to complete this house in time, because business people have already booked to occupy. He thanks Kiva for the financial support that will enable him to hit the milestone.
