Eric, 32, is married and lives in a semi-permanent house in Kyenjojo, Uganda. He is a farmer who grows tea, a common source of income in this region. He inherited the fields upon which he grew up and now grows tea. Droughts that cause his tea crops to dry up are his challenge.
Eric is asking for a 2,000,000 UGX loan from HOFOKAM to buy manure and pesticides for his tea plantation. He dreams of building a permanent home and educating his two children.
