Emmanuel's story

Emmanuel is a prominent farmer from Kijwiga-Bwamiramira sub county. He is age 47 and married with five children all school-going. He grows mainly maize on a commercial scale. He has been doing this for the last 15 years. He also runs a piggery project, which supplements his family income.

He has applied for a loan of UGX 5,000,000 to enable him to pay workers helping him in weeding and planting more maize. He is a hardworking and honest man. He is faced with a challenge of unreliable weather changes such as heavy rains and drought, which destroy his crops. He intends to purchase a tractor in the future so that he can be able to cultivate on a large scale in a more efficient way.
