A loan of $3,600 helped a member to hire labour to make bricks.


Rwere-Nyabihinga Kwebisaho Group's story

Patrick is a married man, aged 35 years, and he has four children. He stays in Rwere – Rwetondo ward. He has been a member of Rwere – Nyabihinga Kwebisaho Group and with UGAFODE Microfinance Limited (MDI) for over six years.

He got to know about KIVA recently, when he was advanced a previous loan with his group. At that time, he received a loan of ugx.1,500,000 Ugandan Shillings.

With his share of this new loan, Patrick is going to diversify his business of brick making, through adding value to the business. He is going to employ people to make more earthen bricks. This will help him provide service to the people around him, and also generate income to meet the needs of his family. Thanks to Kiva and UGAFODE, for giving this opportunity and helping the low income earners who have managed to engage in sustainable development.

In this group: Aloysious, Patrick, Fred, Rauben, Matsiko, Eunice, George, Denis, George, Ahumwire, Hope, Augustine
