A loan of $800 helped to renovate his house.


Michael's story

Michael is a second-time borrower of UGAFODE Microfinance Ltd (MDI) and is applying for 2,500,000 Uganda shillings. He resides in the outskirts of the city with his wife and four children, two of whom attend school. He sells fish in two various markets as his main source of income, and this has enabled him to build a small house and educate some of his children.

He applied for the loan purposely to expand his business and renovate his house that is in a sorry state. His future plan is having his house renovated and giving his children a good education. He is confident that with the partnership of Kiva lenders and Ugafode, his dreams will be a step closer to reality.
