Francis's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to weed, prune and mulch his banana plantation.
Francis is a 36-year-old married man with four children living in Fort Portal, Uganda. He is a farmer growing food crops like tomatoes, bananas and maize. He started this work with the aim of earning more income. He faces the challenge of less capital to look after his plantation. However, he has the future prospect of owning his own assets, where he will grow these crops instead of hiring land. Francis has asked for a loan to weed, prune and mulch his banana plantation.
