This is David. In his own words: "I was once a civil servant where I used to earn income to support my family. After retiring from the service it was hard to support my family, and then I joined UGAFODE Microfinance Limited (MDI) for financial assistance. UGAFODE enabled me to educate my children and maintain a stable family at home because all the necessary requirements in a home, I would provide.

I have been able to start up a tree planting project and nursery beds where I now get money from the sell of tree seedlings of different tree types.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank UGAFODE very much for all the good services it is giving us and making me be part of this exercise. May God bless UGAFODE."
