A loan of $1,150 helped to buy building materials for the completion of his residential house.

Lawrence's story

Lawrence is 50 years old and has a host of children, but only one child attends school. Lawrence operates a carpentry workshop which is located in Kagadi town. It is a business he has been doing for the last 20 years, as a major source of income. He started this business to supplement the income he gets from car driving at one of the schools in Kagadi, in order to adequately meet the demands of his extended family, including relatives.

Lawrence wants a loan of UGX 3,000,000/= (three million shillings) to buy building materials to complete his residential house and have a good environment for the family.The challenge he is facing includes the high prices for the construction materials which has made the house stay incomplete for so long.

He thanks God for UGAFODE, whose services came at the time he needed them most. With the loan, he will finally be able to occupy his new house. His family is excited because very soon their status will change from living in a mud-and-wattle house to living in a permanent house. Lawrence thanks UGAFODE and Kiva lenders for the partnership.
