Abel's story

Abel is a permanent resident of Nyakayojo, a village in Mbarara district, and is 47 years old. He is married and has 8 children and 3 dependents from his aunt who died 5 years ago. Due to the fact that all his children and dependents are in school, he was forced by circumstances to do the business of piggery and pig butchery in order to earn a living for his family and dependents. This business has grown, enabling him to support his family and even pay school fees for his children. He has a small semi-permanent house for his family but the house is old to the extent that it leaks during rainy season. He is requesting a loan of 4,000,000 Uganda Shillings (UGX) to renovate his house and the balance will be used to clear tuition for the children and dependents.In the photograph is Abel with his wife who also signed the kiva waiver.
