Kasese, Uganda / Primary/secondary school costs

A loan of $275 helped to pay school fees for her children.


Thereza's story

Thereza used the previous loan to pay school fees for her children. She is a 48-year-old married woman with three children living in Kasese, Uganda. After assessing the lucrative nature of the transport sector, she decided to invest in motorcycle transport, and with the income earned, she has been able to buy land and pay school fees for her children.

Thereza's courage is such as you can rarely find, given the cultural set-up that women are not supposed to ride motorcycles, but she does. She has been in business for three years. Her major challenges are high fuel costs and the poor road network, while her business dream is to hire out the motorcycle and venture into farming if she gets enough capital. Thereza is requesting a loan to pay school fees for her children.
