A loan of $1,900 helped to finish construction of his house.

Rogers's story

Rogers is a shrewd and hardworking young man of 27 years. He started welding immediately after he dropped out of school five years ago due to lack of school fees, and helped fund school fees for his siblings, who were still in primary school. Through hard work, he has managed to educate two of his siblings and two relatives with whom he works at the welding workshop.

He is building his first residential house, which will help him find enough space to live with his family as well as some relatives since it has been costly to rent. He commends Ugafode for the good job of helping the poor to also access loans, unlike in commercial banks, where the procedures are long and unfriendly. His previous loan was used on the same house, and he hopes that with this loan he will be able to complete it and move in with his family.
