David is a married man aged 42 years with five children. He grew up in a very humble family, which had no assets and even getting tuition to educate him was problematic. He opted to work in the neighbors’ banana (plantain) plantation to earn a living. Due to his hard work, he managed to save some money and bought a piece of land where he put a banana plantation. This enabled him to improve his status to the extent that he even managed to get a wife who is also hard working and developmental. His farming project has been growing until last year when it was affected by banana wilt and drought.
David is requesting a loan of 2,000,000 to buy organic manure and insecticides to apply into the plantation so as to enable him to continue supporting his family.
