Samuel, a married father of two, is a farmer in rural western Uganda. He grows maize beans as well as bananas, which he uses for his family, and then sells the rest of the produce. He purchases from other agricultualists to supplement his, and later sells in bulk to big consumers in the city and in schools.

He is challenged by limited capital, though, but hopes that with financial support from Ugafode this will soon be history.

He is hard-working.

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.
