Kalerwe Ttula Tda- Farouk Group's story

Farouk is a 36-year-old taxi driver and a father of two. He does this work every day and has found it rewarding. He has been able to buy a plot of land and build a small house for his family in Kalerwe, a Kampala City suburb.

He started by driving other people's taxis, but now wants to buy his own taxi, and with his experience, he is sure it will be very rewarding. He therefore joined Kalerwe Tula Taxi Drivers Group so as to access a loan of 1,000,000 Uganda Shillings from Ugafode Microfinance to top up and buy a taxi. He believes his profits will increase, and he will adequately meet his family's needs.

With hard work, he believes he will soon be able to have a stable income, put up some rentals and have his children’s education needs catered for. He thanks the lenders for their great contribution in uplifting them.
