A loan of $575 helped to buy windows for his house.

Emmanuel's story

Emmanuel is a permanent resident of Katembe, a village in Isingiro district. He is 47 years old. He is married with eight children and two dependents from his uncle, who died four years ago. All his children and dependents are in school.

From childhood, Emmanuel has been a farmer and a banana (plantain) seller. In 2008, he learned through a friend of the existence of UGAFODE Micro finance Limited. He was funded with a loan of UGX 1,500,000 which he used to build a semi-permanent house to accommodate his family.

Now, he is requesting for a loan UGX 1,500,000 to buy windows for his house since, in its current state, it is prone to thievery and mosquitoes (see picture attached). He is hopeful that his family will live under better security and conditions when the house is complete.

He is grateful for the partnership with UGAFODE Micro finance Limited as well as with the Kiva lenders. In the picture, from left to right, is Emmanuel, his guarantor who signed the waiver form, and the UGAFODE credit officer. Emmanuel is illustrating to them what he wants to do on the house.
