Lydia's story

Lydia is a purposeful, clever, kind and polite woman. She is single, with two children. She is an accountant in one of the financial institutions in Kampala. She is a student at Uganda Management Institute. She is studying very well with excellent marks. She has been paying her university fees. However, she has not been able to save enough money this time for her tuition after all her family expenses.

She is asking for a loan of 3,000,000 UGX through Kiva’s partner UGAFODE to help her clear her tuition since her exams are around the corner. She hopes to secure a better job with better pay in another institution after completing her course. Lydia is grateful to Kiva and partners for the support given to her towards achieving this milestone.
