Naume is a 48-year-old married woman with six children living in Kasese, Uganda. She has been selling jerrycans (used for transporting water) for four years; she supplements her business income by farming. She began this business in order to sustain her family when her husband had an accident and could not work any more. She hopes to educate her children. Her challenges are competition and inadequate capital. Her business plan includes venturing into new markets. Naume intends to use the loan to buy jerrycans to sell.
This loan provides farmers and low-income entrepreneurs from underserved rural areas with access to financial services. By supporting this loan, you allow more farmers and rural entrepreneurs to access capital.
