Aron's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy fertilizers for his banana plantation to increase production for profit maximization.

Aron's story

Aron is married with four children who attend school. He is involved in agriculture, specializing in banana growing.

He has managed to improve his farming through associating with model farmers who offer him advice. On harvest, he supplies the bananas to food markets in Lyantonde and Masaka. With the money he gets, he provides his family with the basic necessities as well as educating his children, who are still in school.

His region was recently struck with drought, which affected his farming. Aron has applied for a loan of 2,000,000 UGX to buy fertilizers for his garden, since farming is his only source of income.

He is hopeful that the quality and quantity of his farm yields will improve, which will attract competitive prices, thus bringing in more income. Aron appreciates the lenders for the support that will improve his farming.
