A loan of $375 helped buy video tapes to sell.


Geofrey's story

Geofrey is a 30-year-old hard-working man with one child living in Fort Portal, Uganda. His main business is running a video library, and he is aiming high to expand to other areas and educate his child. He faces the hardship of customers not returning the videos on time, and his plan is to trade in wholesale instead of hiring the videos out to retail customers. Geofrey intends to use the loan to buy video tapes to sell.
