Judith is a widow and a farmer mainly dealing in cattle fattening and trade. She started farming in 2006 and has done this to date. Her farm is located on Ibare-Igara-Bushenyi and she started it with a hope of getting a clear source of income so she could sustain herself and the family. With the UGAFODE loan (if given) she would like to buy three cows for milk production so that she increases her sources of income. Her clients are the local people who usually buy the cows and the milk from her. Her hope for the future is becoming financially stable despite the challenge of competition which she is facing at the moment. She also has a produce business in the city which she says has greatly supported her and she believes that with the sources of income she has, she will be able to cater for the needs of the family.
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.
