Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

A loan of $2,475 helped a member to buy more fish to smoke and sell.

Rock Of Ages Group, Lugazi's story

W. Julius is the leader of his lending group in Lugazi. He is a sincere and hardworking man, married with seven children aged 14 to 3 years. He also takes care of two orphans from his late sister.

Julius has been a fishmonger from Busaana Landing Site for seven years and he is able to make 70,000/= as profits from the fish that he sells. He buys fresh fish and smokes them for his customers who buy from his workplace.

Before he started getting loans, Julius was a fisherman but left that to buy the fish and smoke them himself since his wife is also involved in some other businesses of her own. Julius needs a loan to be able to buy more fish that he will smoke for resale.

In this group: Julius, John, Justine, Ismail, Sundia, Muzamiru, Siraji, Rose, Vivian, Prossy, Faruk, Awali, Abdallah
