Apollo's story

Apollo, a resident of Rutunguru, Ntungamo District, is married to Scovia Busingye and they have 2 children. Apollo buys matooke (green bananas) from local farmers and sells them at a nearby town for profit. He has applied for a loan of UGX 500,000 to expand his business and provide for his extended family. He wants to buy a motorcycle with the next loan which will bring him more income to adequately meet the needs of his family. He is hardworking and is grateful to the Kiva lenders for lending to his businesses through Ugafode Micro Finance, Ltd.
