Adong Barbra:
Pride Scholarship Scheme beneficiary.

“My name is Barbra Adong, a student of S.2 at Graceland Girls Secondary School, Gulu. I live with my mum who is a client of Pride Microfinance Ltd, Gulu Branch. My heartfelt appreciation goes to the management of Pride Microfinance Limited for having offered me a scholarship that made the horizon of my future brighter.

I thank the Lord almighty for all that he has done because it would not have been  an easy situation had my  mum not joined Pride Microfinance and consequently, getting the Pride Scholarship for me. I lost my Dad in 2004 when I was 8 years old and things fell apart when my Uncle too, who had been sponsoring me through Primary school died in 2010.

My mum was struggling with her small business, which was going down because there was no money for working capital. From this small business, we expected food, medical care clothing and everything for household maintenance. My sister had dropped out of school because she would constantly be sent back home for being a fees defaulter. I was supposed to report for secondary School where I had been admitted but there was no money for the fees and other scholastic requirements.

I applied for scholarships from three institutions but I was not successful. This is when I turned to God in prayer. I prayed earnestly and I kept my faith through the scripture in Ephesians 6:10 which says “Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power”. This is when my mum got for me the Pride scholarship.

I am so happy that Pride Microfinance is sponsoring my education in a girls’ school. I feel so dignified and so proud of Pride because they have given me a new hope to quality education. I am so grateful that my mum is also expanding her business of selling ‘Malwa’ and beads using Pride working capital loans.  I also thank the Manager of Pride Gulu branch for his kindness and his struggle to extend good services to the people of Gulu.

My advice to those who are reading this testimony is that Pride is the right financial institution for you because of their excellent products and services and good customer care. I advise everyone to continue working hard and trusting in God to make a way for an abundant life. I aspire to be a very good lawyer in future. Thank you very much”.
