Moses
Moses is 35 years old, married and has two children, ages 7 and 2. He is a dealer of agricultural produce like rice and maize and has been in the business since 2007. He also sells local brew. He pays school fees for his older child and also one other dependent.

Moses has approached Ugafode for a loan of 3,000,000 UGX to buy more produce, especially maize, now that the season is on. He will repay the loan using the proceeds from the sale of the produce.

Moses' dream is to buy a vehicle for easy transportation of the produce which will also reduce his costs. He also will be able to educate his children so that they have a bright future. However, he faces challenges like competition, seasonality and weather.

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.

The organization believes that the risk of offering services to remote clients is outweighed by the benefits to customers and their often underserved communities.
