Robert's story

Robert is a hardworking man aged 33 years old and a resident of Buhigure,Kamuri, with 2 children. He has a business in a rural trading centre and he intends to expand it to wholesale shop. He says the distance from the trading centre to Isingiro town is so long which eats into his profit and also compromises his service delivery since he does not have some of the items needed. Having come from an extended family, he has many dependents that he takes care of and he also supports in paying tuition for his siblings, because he wants them to study and get jobs so that they can be self sustaining. Robert wants to replenish his business stock, so he requests a loan to buy general stock of daily household use items, such as rice, sugar, corn flour, beverages, soap, stationery, toiletries and other personal use products. This loan will allow his store to continue being one of the best stocked ones in the neighborhood. This business is allowing him to support his household, help his parents, siblings, relatives and allocate a small amount of her earnings to save up for building his own house. It is his big dream to have a house that he loves because of the effort its taking to save for it. He has to work very hard to achieve this. For these reasons, help and support this progressive man, who wants to become self-sufficient and also contribute to his community.
