Desteo now wants a loan of 800,000 shillings to buy a bull for his farm and also expand the farm. His dream is to see the farm expand and to have many cows which will give him milk that he can sell and improve his earnings. His main challenges are the diseases which attack animals and the unreliable weather that at times affects the pasture that the animals feed on.

More information about this loan
This loan is part of UGAFODE's program for clients who live in isolated rural areas with limited access to financial services. Uniquely, UGAFODE focuses its efforts on agricultural areas in Uganda that are over 50 km from their branches, providing loans to both groups and individual borrowers. The organization believes that the risk of offering services to remote clients is outweighed by the benefits to customers and their often underserved communities.
