Abdalla's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped To boost his Irish potato business by buying more Irish potatoes to sell, for use as french fries.
Abdallah is a fourth time borrower and is applying for a loan of UGX1,000,000. Abdallah is a married young man with two children. He rents a small two roomed house in the outskirts of the city. Abdallah is a businessman in one of the markets in the neighbourhood of his residential area. He mainly deals in the selling of avocados and Irish potatoes. Abdallah's working capital is still small, this is his main challenge. He applied for the loan to use to go to a village and purchase bags of Irish potatoes that are in high demand in the market. This high demand is mainly because many of the residents of the area are university students who consume more fast foods in the form of french fries. He hopes to work very hard and be able to expand his business and also save some to acquire a piece of land.
