A hardworking and die-hard agriculturalist, R. Wilson, aged 69 years, has been maintaining a banana plantation and rearing cows for more than thirty years in his home area of Ntungamo. This fetches him 160,000 Ugandan shillings per month from milk and banana sales, though not enough to sustain his family of ten children as some are still students attending high institutions of learning.
Wilson has persevered to keep his enterprise growing and his aim in taking up this loan is to enable him to buy mulches and manure for his plantations as he looks at expansion plans of starting up a poultry project, and transporting his products to bigger markets. This will help him increase productivity and also earn more revenue and be able to live a more sustaining life.
Before indulging in business, Wilson was a Clerical Officer in Ruhaama until he inherited the current business from his late father. However, he has worked hard to make the business better.
