A loan helped to buy more cows for fattening for resale.

John's story

John has a large family that he takes care of, which are his own children and other dependents. He does mixed farming, mainly banana growing and other seasonal crops, in addition to cattle fattening. Farming has been his main source of income for many years and he appreciates Kiva lenders for the continued support that has improved his farming activities.

John has applied for a loan from UGAFODE to buy more cows for fattening for resale. He is confident that his income will increase, thus making him financially able to provide for his children and keep them in school.

John appreciates the financial support that will boost his farming business.
