Edson is a 35-year-old progressive farmer working in the coffee trade as his primary source of income. He applied for a loan of 1,000,000 UGX to buy coffee seedlings for his coffee plantation. Edson intends to plant the coffee seedlings on an acre of land which he purchased last year.
He hopes to harvest over two tonnes of coffee in the next three years. He plans to roof his house and also take his children to better schools. His current production will be able to service the loan as he prepares for future borrowings.
