Isaac is married and has a young family of five children between the ages of three months and seven years. Four of them are in junior primary school. He is a farmer who grows maize and beans on a large scale for sell and also for his family consumption. He started the serious farming in 2006 to meet the needs of his growing family. With the loan he will be able to buy seedlings for planting during this rainy season. His main challenge is the unpredictable seasonal changes and price fluctuations. His dream is to build a house for himself and his family. With a house he will be free from the burden of renting. This in turn will enable him to comfortably pay his children's fees.
More information about this loan
This loan is part of UGAFODE's program for clients who live in isolated rural areas with limited access to financial services. Uniquely, UGAFODE focuses its efforts on agricultural areas in Uganda that are over 50 km from their branches, providing loans to both groups and individual borrowers. The organization believes that the risk of offering services to remote clients is outweighed by the benefits to customers and their often underserved communities.
