Review for Connect Africa Foundation Inc, Newton Centre, MA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I welcome you all to read my story about Connect Africa. My name is Galabuzi Edward. I have a family and one child his name is Ssesanga Marvin and he is 6 years.

I am a boda boda motor cyclist (boda boda means transporting people for money). I got to know about Connect Africa while at my job. I had packed my motorcycle waiting for passengers then there came a customer who I transported and he liked me and kept coming to me to transport him wherever he wanted. He was Charles Kalule.

One day as I was chatting with him I mentioned that this motorcycle is not mine, it belonged to someone else. Charles later as we chatted told me about Connect Africa and that since I seem to be faithful Connect Africa could give me a microloan to by my own motorcycle as long as I would abide by the microloan terms. The other option was to save with Connect Africa and when the money accumulates they would buy me a motorcycle of my own. So I saved my little savings with Connect Africa up to 1Million shillings. They gave me a new motorcycle which I still have and I have no words to express my gratitude. With this motorcycle I pay school fees and all scholarstic materials for my child and also I have bought off 2 pieces of land in the village.

I thank Connect Africa very much and I pray it can help many men like me to start businesses of their own.

God bless you all.
Galabuzi Edward
