In his third loan cycle, Zavuga is a repeat customer with this institution. He is engaged in growing vegetables and buying dry produce, which he sells to traders from Kampala and neighboring areas.

Zavuga has applied for a loan of 1,500,000 Ugandan shillings. The purpose of this loan is to buy mulch, pesticides and fuel to run the generator used in pumping water for irrigation. The returns will help Zavuga solve his immediate needs, like tuition for his siblings as well as food and clothing.

Zavuga faces challenges like pest management and changes in weather patterns, which force him to source water, which is very costly since he does not have enough capital. He hopes, in future, to be in a position to buy more land to expand his business and increase his output.
