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

A loan helped to purchase mulch for his banana plantation to control soil erosion in the coming rainy season.

Joseph's story

Joseph, 37, is a single man who just takes care of the siblings to help them acquire a living. His siblings are all in school and he offered it as his role to educate all of them.

He was a teacher by profession, but unfortunately lost the job in 2001 and decided to join the agricultural sector. He appreciates the lenders who gave him funds previously, for he managed to buy manure for the banana plantation and the harvest was really good, which attracted a better price and enabled him to pay school fees for his siblings.

Joseph has applied for a loan of 1,500,000 UGX to buy mulch for his banana plantation so that he can control soil erosion in this coming rainy season. This will ultimately improve his yields, and so will his revenue, that he will use to educate his siblings.

Thank you, lenders for the continued support.
