Aidah is a widow hailing from Lugazi, in the Mbarara municipality. She married the husband she loved, but he later died. They had three children who are all in school. She had no income-generating business, so she resorted to trade in second-hand clothes to cater to her survival, as well as her children.

With the help of her first loan of UGX 1,000,000 from Ugafode, the business grew and has enabled her to build a semi-permanent house to accommodate the family. She is requesting a loan of UGX 1,500,000 to complete the residential house which will accommodate her children and dependants. She is a hard working woman. Aidah is photographed with the builders at the site (all agreed to the photograph).

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
