Ashrafu is a new customer, age 35, married with two children.

He deals with onions, and he applied for a loan of UGX.2,000,000 to improve his farming business.

He has a challenge of low business turnover from his commercial farming, and low market prices, so he decided to come to UGAFODE for a loan to invest in man power/labor and to expand both his farmland and agricultural products.

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.
