Yokonia is a 45-year-old married man with eight children living in Kasese, Uganda. For eight years now, he has been in the shoe business, and with the proceeds he has been able to provide basics to his family and buy land. He also practices farming to supplement his business.
The good father that he is, he desires to educate his children to attain degrees as a minimum qualification. The ever changing customer preferences coupled with inadequate capital affects his business, while his dream is to own a boutique.
Yokonia intends to use the loan to buy shoes to sell.
This loan provides farmers and low-income entrepreneurs from underserved rural areas with access to financial services. By supporting this loan, you allow more farmers and rural entrepreneurs to access capital.
