Emmanuel is 30 years old married with three children. He is a farmer who focuses on coffee growing. He has over three acres of coffee, and the business has helped him to construct a permanent house for his family and provide them with the basic necessities of life.

Emmanuel has requested a loan of 1,000,000 Uganda shillings to buy manures and fertilizers for coffee growing and carry out mulching, because he digs on hilly areas where soil erosion is taking place. This will enable him to realize much higher yields and revenue from the sales of his coffee. With the high yields and profits, he will be be in a position to provide for his family adequately. His dream is to start up a coffee processing plant in his region.

Emmanuel's main business challenge is inadequate manures and fertilizers to put on his crop. He looks forward to establishing a good relationship with UGAFODE since he plans to request a bigger loan in the near future.
