A loan of $1,025 helped to purchase maize and coffee.


George's story

George is 38 years old. He lives in Kagadi, Uganda. For 15 years he has been trading in produce and the business has been very lucrative.

George is requesting a loan, which he will use to buy maize and coffee to sell. Inadequate capital is the hardship affecting the business. He dreams of educating his children up to the university and buying a car to ease on his transport to different markets. In the future, he would like to own a food store in town and diversify his business to include cattle rearing.
