A loan of $3,000 helped a member to supply his bricklaying business.

Nabweru Development Group's story

Patrick is 28 years old. He is a member of Nabweru Nansana Development group. He is single, however he has a lot of responsibilities taking care of his siblings and the children of his late brother, who passed away three years ago.

At the tender age of 16, Patrick started his business of brick laying in order to earn income to be able to pay his own school fees. Due to insufficient funds, Patrick did not go far in his studies; however, he never lost hope but continued to work hard to see to it that his siblings and dependents succeed in their education.

Patrick wants a loan to boost his bricklaying business so as to be able to continue paying school fees for his dependents, and also to cater to life’s basic needs. He is grateful that he has somewhere to turn for financial assistance when the going gets tough. Thank you, Kiva lenders.
