Steven's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to provide clean drinking water access and employment in Nansana, Uganda.
Steven is a salesman at one of the top Brewing companies in Uganda and a businessman. He has worked in sales for over six years and understands sales, marketing and distribution to the core. With the scarcity of clean drinking water, he believes that opening up a Jibu Franchise in Nansana will provide a solution to this in his community.His passion is to always make a difference in the community and Jibu is giving him an opportunity to do so. This loan will fund all the necessary costs to get Steven`s franchise up and running, including storefront build-out, staff training, support overhead and sourcing including shipping and installation of his Jibu water filtration unit. Jibu is a social enterprise pioneering a powerful new model that capitalizes and equips entrepreneurs in emerging market communities to own businesses that ensure access to basic human necessities, with water as an anchor product. Jibu has scaled a network of locally owned, financially independent and self-sustaining franchises that provide safe drinking water to their communities while offering life-changing training and employment. The company’s vision is to train, finance, and grow a network of co-invested business owners like Steven, who will revolutionize the way critical resources are leveraged to develop essential infrastructure in emerging markets.
