Edison's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy soap, sugar, rice, salt and other items for resale.
Edison used the previous loan to buy soap to sell at his store. Edison is a 40-year-old married man with four children, and he lives in Kasese, Uganda. He has run a retail shop business selling general merchandise for the plast four years and also does farming to supplement his income, growing cocoa. He has been able to maintain his business and sustain his family, even though challenges of price fluctuations alongside inadequate capital hinder his expectations. Edison intends to use the loan to buy soap, sugar, rice, salt and other items for resale.
