Alice's story

Alice is a responsible hardworking woman who is 43 years old and married with 2 children in addition to two dependents. All the children are in secondary school. She and her husband are agriculturalists who raise cows in rural Lyantonde. It's through the sale of milk and cows that they have been able to send their children to school and take care of all their household necessities.

With the new loan Alice and her family members are excited that they will finally be able to live in a permanent house, and this will raise their esteem and status in the village. She is excited to do this with UGAFODE whose interest on this product is really affordable.
