Tracey chose the recipient of our $25 loan this month. It took her fifteen minutes of searching to find the person she most wanted to help today.
“But they’re all so deserving,” she moaned to me. “How can I pick just one?”
“You’ll know when you find it,” I told her. And she did. Cause she cried.
So this month we’re helping Grace, from Uganda. This is what Grace had shared with Kiva about her life and what she wanted to do with her $375 loan, which she intends paying back over 9 months.
“Grace is 32 years old, married with five children, living in her own house in Fort Portal, Uganda. Her dream is to educate her children and also to set up an income-generating activity that is sustainable for the family. She sells new clothes and has been in this business for four years. The major challenge faced is high cost of the clothes that leads to low profits, and her dream is to set up another outlet in town. Grace needs the loan to buy new trousers and skirts to sell.”
Tracey says she got all emotional because they have a lot of kids like us and we take something like educating our kids for granted over here.
