Stephen started welding at a tender age after his parents failed to find tuition to pay for his high school. He mastered the art of welding and designing and is now good at fabricating windows and doors, which turn out to be beautiful.

Although he started with nothing, he now boasts of a good house that he has yet to complete. He will use the money to buy metal frames for windows and doors for his incomplete residential house. He hopes the standard of living for his family members will improve with the support from Ugafode through the loan.
