A loan of $2,750 helped a member to buy a pool table.

Kijapan Group's story

George is a second-time borrower with UGAFODE Microfinance Ltd (MDI), applying for a loan through a group. He is married with one child. He operates a small bar business in Maganjo on the outskirts of Kampala. Here, he also runs a pool table business with a help of one employee. George says that this has enabled him to take care of his family.

Besides looking after his family, he has also managed to pay tuition for his two young sisters. His major challenge is inadequate stock. He also wants to top up on money to buy another pool table but is constrained by financial ability. This is why he is applying for a loan to buy another pool table such that he can increase his income. His future plan is to work hard and have his own commercial house as well as lift his family to a better financial position.
