Charles, a coffee farmer aged 35 years, is married with four children. He started farming way back after dropping out of school. He did so many jobs but failed due to his education level. This could not lead him to a moderate life standard.

He then decided to concentrate on coffee farming which has given him a new life. As of today, Charles has managed to build a home for his family, and he can raise school fees for the children and take care of their medical bills. His main challenge now is that he wants more capital to buy fertilizers and also to be able start processing his own coffee so that he can sell it at a high price.

In order to achieve his dreams, Charles started borrowing from UGAFODE and has now applied for a loan of UGX 800,000. He believes he will pay well and get other bigger loans in the future. He is a hardworking man.
