A loan of $800 helped to buy cement, nails, and iron sheets as well as to pay builders for labor.


Oliver's story

Oliver, age 43, is a teacher. She had initially hoped to study to become a nurse, but her parents did not have sufficient money to sponsor a nursing course. For the past 10 years, she has earned a low and often irregular wage as a teacher, so she keeps poultry and pigs to earn additional income. She lives in Kagadi with her husband and their four young children, all of whom attend school.

Oliver has been trying to build a house for her family to live in. She is requesting a loan in order to buy cement, nails, and iron sheets as well as to pay builders for labor.

Oliver thanks her Kiva lenders for helping her improve her family's quality of living.
