A loan of $400 helped to buy building materials to build a simple house on her plot of land.

Ester's story

Ester is a first time borrower of UGAFODE Microfinance Ltd. (MDI), applying for 1,000,000 (One Million) Uganda Shillings. She is a single mother of one child that she lives with in one of the rental units in a city slum of Kamwokya.

She is a tailor and operates a small retail shop in the same place where she stays. That has helped her be able to take care of her child. Besides looking after her child, she has managed to buy a small plot of land in Kito, Kirinya. Her major challenge is renting for so long and being overcharged for rent, yet she has her plot which is undeveloped.

This has forced her to start building a simple house that she would like to occupy in the near future, but she is being constrained by financial challenges. That is why she is applying for the loan. Her future plan is to work hard finish her house and pay well the loan to have a good repayment history.
