As the picture shows, 32-year-old Godwin makes ends meet from brick-laying and sales. Godwin, who is happily married with 3 children, had 3 years of experience in this field.
Across the country, there has been a construction boom and businesses like Godwin's have benefited.
Godwin's business interests are not limited to brick laying and sales; he also ekes out auxiliary income from agriculture. His weekly gross sales total up to UGX 40,000. Despite this paltry amount, he remains upbeat about his future prospects.
Godwin lays great store on family-related responsibilities. Despite his minimal income, he has strained every nerve to ensure that he gives his children an education and significantly improves his family's welfare.
Casting his mind to the future, Godwin says he owes it to himself to elevate the standards of living of his family. He hopes to build a house for the family. He says this will all come to pass once his business makes the inroads that he expects as a result of this loan. He plans to use his Kiva loan to purchase more land where he can carry out his business. He says with more land, he will be able to make more bricks.
