A loan helped pay school fees for her children.


Zaituna's story

Zaituna is a married mother of four children, living in the rural town of Nakaloke. She is a hardworking lady that sells charcoal to supplement the meager income of her husband.

Zaituna appreciates UGAFODE and Kiva funders for the financial assistance they extend to her.
