Several of us at BANGS Shoes have a bit of a green thumb. Some of us may be more successful than others, but regardless we totes had to jump all over the opportunity to help a fellow gardner in another part of the world.
Meet fellow green thumber(yes, that is now a word) Musisi the BANGS Shoes second Kiva loan recipient for June. He is a 71-year-old married man with five children living in Kasese, Uganda. He harvests the produce from his farm to sell and with the proceeds from this he has been able to pay school fees for his children and buy more land. He is asking for a loan to buy farm inputs like sprays for his gardens.
We can’t wait to see how this enables his business to flourish!
