A loan of $600 helped to buy fishing nets.

Isma's story

Ismail is a new client of UGAFODE and he applied for one million five hundred thousand shillings for buying fishing nets to use in his fishing business. He started the fishing business in the year 2000 and he says it has helped him get money to support his family. The business is located near the lake shore and his main clients are residents of Kasese District where he supplies the fish.

He hopes to get enough money from the business to pay school dues for his children and they will hence get quality education. His main challenge is the unpredictable fish season, since this causes price fluctuations and hence affects his income. He describes himself as a shrewd and honest businessman, which attributes have helped him carry on the business for this long.
