Mary is requesting a loan of UGX 1,300,000 to build an extension on her house to accommodate her goats in order to increase their productivity as well boost income for the survival of the children. The extension will save her from the burden of living with goats in the same house, which may in turn result in an outbreak of disease for her young children.
