Kasifa is a hardworking 38-year-old woman from Kisenyi, a suburb in Mbarara municipality. Kasifa grew up with her grandmother, because her mother and father were still in school when they gave birth to her, and her father had no source of income. All of her needs were catered for by her grandmother who was a peasant, although she could not afford school fees for her. Kasifa then dropped out of school to help her grandmother in her restaurant.

Due to the fact that she was bright, Kasifa also learnt the business and ended up starting her own restaurant. She later got a loan of 1,000,000 from Ugafode Micro finance which helped her business to grow further. This loan was repaid very well, and she is now requesting a loan of 2,500,000 to complete her house.

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.
