A loan of $1,125 helped to buy motorcycles for a transport business.


Salim's story

Salim is a 35-year-old married man with four children living in Bundibugyo, Uganda. Seven years ago, he decided to venture into motorcycle transport to help meet the family's needs, given its low cost of operation. He also grows cocoa to supplement his income sources, and we found him in his plantation at the time of the interview. He started as a hired driver who had to remit 80% of his daily earnings to his boss, but, through hard work, he has been able to buy his own motorcycle. High license fees and poor roads are his major constraints, while his dreams are to own a transport company and educate his children up to university. Salim intends to use this loan to buy a motorcycle for his transport business.
