Lydia's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase construction materials.

Lydia's story

Lydia is a single mother with four children living at Naminya Buikwe District where she operates a hairdressing saloon and who has seen her business grow over the years.

This is the second time she is borrowing from Ugafode Microfinance. She used the first loan to buy land in Naminya Buikwe District. She now wants a loan to buy construction materials so that she can complete the construction of her residential house.

This will help to provide decent accommodation to her household members.
