A loan of $800 helped to buy firewood for baking bricks.


David's story

David is an old client of UGAFODE Microfinance. He is married with six children. He works six days in a week and works six hours per day on average. He is into brick making which he has done since 2003. He started brick making so that he could earn income to sustain his family. He makes bricks in Ruyonza Local Cell 1 and he hopes to use the loan money of two million shillings to buy firewood, which he will use to bake the bricks he makes. His clients are mainly the builders and the general population who use bricks for construction purposes. His main challenge is rain which sometimes hits and damages his bricks before they dry hence causing him a shortage. Apart from brick making, David also sells timber which gives him additional income to support his family. He describes himself as a very hard-working man and he strongly believes that he will achieve his dream of expanding his business with the help of Kiva loans.
