Mable has five children who are all in school. She is a resident of Kigyende, a suburb in Isingiro district. She married at 18 to a man she loved. But later, the husband deserted his family and moved to Tanzania. Unfortunately the family had no income-generating business except for a small banana plantation which was the source of food for the family. Mable struggled for the survival of her children.

She then contacted Ugafode Microfinance and acquired a loan of 2,000,000 UGX that helped her expand and improve the plantation. Because of her hard work, her business developed and now supports her family as well as a commercial house which increases her family income. She is requesting a loan of 4,500,000 UGX to complete the house and to pay school fees.

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.
