Florah is a forty-year-old married woman with four children living in Kasese, Uganda.
Sixteen years ago she decided to venture into agriculture and she owns a banana plantation. After realizing that her plantation could not sustainably supply her customers, she decided to buy from other farmers. Being the good mother that she is, she desires to educate her children up to the university level. Banana wilt is her major set back while her dream is to venture into modern farming so as to realize high and better yields.
Florah intends to use the loan to buy bananas to sell.
