A loan of $1,175 helped to buy computers for his Internet cafe business.

Mark's story

Mark is a married man who has two children, living in Kagadi,Uganda. For two years he has been operating an Internet cafe, and with the money he earned he has been able to buy a plot of land, and provide the basics to his young family. After completing his studies he decided to explore his dream of becoming self-employed, and that is why he ventured into business. Lack of enough computers to serve the increasing number of clients and inefficient electricity supply are his major challenges. His dream is to have one of the most efficient Internet cafes in the district.

Mark is requesting the loan facility to buy computers for his Internet cafe business.
