Sam is a 42-year-old Ugandan citizen. He is married with four children and lives in Kisharara, Rukungiri District. He is a very hardworking person who juggles tending to his farm with working as a school teacher to earn his salary.
He is acquiring an agricultural loan to help him boost and improve his agricultural production. He will buy manure to grow bananas and buy feed for his pigs. He started all these projects way back in a quest to improve and increase his family's income.
Previously, Sam had a problem because of his low family income. He earned little or no pay from his duty as a teacher. Meanwhile, the family was growing and the cost of living was increasing. He then sought financial assistance from UGAFODE Microfinance Limited (MDI) – Rukungiri Branch. This has helped him to tremendously improve his development as an individual and as a role model to his pupils and the community as a whole.
